Norwich City midfielder Leroy Fer has joined Premier League side QPR.

The Canaries have received a club record fee for the powerful Dutchman, who has penned a three-year contract at Loftus Road.

QPR have chased the former FC Twente star all summer, and have finally got their man.

Norwich's previous record sale was Dean Ashton back in 2006, who signed for West Ham United in a £7.25million move.

It's understood that Rangers have paid in excess of £8million to land Fer, although the deal could eventually be worth £10million to Norwich.

“It was always my dream to stay in England, in the Premier League. QPR did well last season to come up and the squad is full of top players, so I’m delighted to be here.

Harry (Redknapp) told me I was a big target for him and when you hear that from a coach, you want to work with them and play for them."
