Chris Ramsey comments on transfer speculation surrounding Leroy Fer

QPR 1

QPR midfielder Leroy Fer is a transfer target for both Newcastle and Sunderland.

Fer has been linked with a move from QPR to the Premier League, but Chris Ramsey has told WestLondonSport that no approached have yet been made for the midfielder.

Ramsey said: “We’ve not heard anything. He’s a good player and there has been speculation, but of the players there has been speculation over he’s been the least asked-about.”

Following QPR’s relegation to the Championship, it was always likely that Fer would be linked with a move away from Loftus Road.

The Dutch international moved from Norwich to the R’s following their relegation to the second tier, and he was linked with two Premier League teams as the West London team fell down a division.

Earlier this month it was reported by the Daily Star that Sunderland were looking at Fer, whilst North Eastern rivals Newcastle were linked with him last week, as per SoccerNews.

The playmaker is certainly a player too good for the Championship, and he has proven himself in the Premier League on many occasions. Unfortunately he has always been playing in teams who have been relegated, but if set up in a system in which he would be able to enjoy attacking freedom, Fer could become a truly top class player.

Both Newcastle and Sunderland will allow the midfielder this creative freedome, and Fer would bring an attacking threat to their teams that is currently absent.

However, despite the reported interest, neither team have yet to approach QPR concerning the signing of Fer, and it remains to be seen whether any club makes a concrete approach for the midfielder in the coming weeks.
