Norwich City midfielder Leroy Fer has been added to the Holland squad for their final World Cup qualifiers against Hungary and Turkey later this month.

Holland have already qualified for next summer's tournament, but will be keen to finish their campaign strongly as they prepare for Brazil.

Fer has enjoyed an impressive start to life at Carrow Road since his summer switch from FC Twente, and has now been drafted into Louis van Gaal's squad following withdrawals from Jonathan De Guzman and Stijn Schaars.

The 23-year-old's last appearance for the Dutch senior side came just over a year ago, when he came on as a substitute in a win over Turkey.
