Twitter reaction to Leroy Fer move: Norwich fans defiant, QPR fans jubilant

QPR Fans

The Netherlands midfielder's move to Queens Park Rangers from Norwich City has gotten people talking on Twitter.

Leroy Fer has completed his £8 million (some reports state £7m) move to QPR from Norwich City - and the deal has understandably prompted different reactions from fans of either side.

As you would expect, Rs fans are over the moon that another quality signing has moved to Loftus Road this summer, joining the likes of Rio Ferdinand, Steven Caulker, Mauricio Isla and Jordon Mutch.

Eduardo Vargas is also expected to join QPR in the coming days, adding another impressive name to the ranks that Harry Redknapp has already brought to west London this summer.

Fer told the club's official website: “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 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.

“I’m just looking forward to showing what I’m capable of here at QPR.”

For Norwich fans, however, there are mixed emotions when it comes to Fer's exit.

Many have wished the 24-year-old all the best and taken an understanding that the Netherlands midfielder wants to remain in the Premier League.

And yet, many Canaries supporters are taking a different approach. Indeed, the message coming out of some quarters is one of defiance - that Fer will be back in the Championship next year once QPR are relegated.

Here are some of the best reactions on Twitter from fans of both sides...
