The QPR manager Harry Redknapp has welcomed his new signing Leroy Fer who completed his transfer today:

He played for Holland in the World Cup this summer and has all the attributes you'd be looking for from a central midfielder. He's just an outstanding midfield player - great physique, fine ability, he gets box-to-box. I’m really looking forward to integrating him into the squad.

'Top class, hugely respected' first team QPR coach

I'm really pleased to bring Glenn in. I have been really lucky in the last couple of years to have had Steve Cotterill, Steve McClaren and Wally Downes work with us. They all did a fantastic job here.

I spoke with the chairman about the possibility of bringing Glenn in and he thought it was a great idea. Glenn will be great. He has a brilliant knowledge of the game and will be fantastic out on the training ground with the players. He is a hugely-respected coach and, like Steve, has managed his country. I decided that if I was going to bring somebody in, I was going to go for somebody who was top class and that's what Glenn is.
