Leroy Fer explains conversation with agent about QPR future, Feyenoord interested

Feyenoord, De Kuip

QPR midfielder Leroy Fer is attracting interest from Feyenoord.

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Leroy Fer has told Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad that he's aware of interest from former club Feyenoord.

Fer, 26, joined QPR from Norwich in the summer of 2014, and hit six Premier League goals from midfield in a promising campaign, but he couldn't help the R's avoid relegation back to the Championship.

Given that Fer is a Dutch international who scored at the World Cup in 2014, many expected him to leave Loftus Road over the summer for an instant return to the Premier League, but a move didn't materialise for him.

Fer has instead been looking to take QPR back to the top flight, but the season hasn't gone to plan so far, given that Chris Ramsey lost his job back in November.

Now, Fer's fellow Dutchman Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is in charge, and his first match ended in a 0-0 draw against Burnley on Saturday afternoon.

Hasselbaink will no doubt want to keep Fer at Loftus Road, but with the January transfer window fast approaching, the athletic midfielder will be attracting interest - and Fer has told Algemeen Dagblad that he is aware of interest from his former club Feyenoord, who he joined at the age of nine before leaving for Dutch rivals Twente in 2011.

Fer added that he has told his agent he intends to continue at QPR, but can't predict the future, even noting how big of a club Feyenoord are.

"Feyenoord is a big club in the Netherlands," said Fer. "My agent told me about the interest, but I have indicated that I play here. What may happen is for later. I've now worked with [Hasselbaink] for a week. It's very nice. Since coming I just think: I want to stay here. But you never know. In football things can suddenly go very quickly," he added.
