Queens Park Rangers midfielder Leroy Fer eager for permanent Swansea City move

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Leroy Fer joined Swansea City on loan in January.

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Leroy Fer has told BBC Sport that he would like to move to Swansea City in the summer transfer window.

Fer joined Swansea on loan from QPR in the January transfer window, and he has gone on to play an important role for the Welsh side.

Fer made nine Premier League starts for the Swans, and he is now hoping to complete a permanent move to the Liberty Stadium.

"The clubs have to sort it out, but I'm very happy [at Swansea],” he said.

"Hopefully in the future I can sign a deal. I want to be more and more important for Swansea because the four months went well.

"I just need to wait and hopefully I can stay in Swansea.”

Swansea manager Francesco Guidolin has already stated that he would like to sign Fer on a long-term deal.

It seems that the transfer is a real possibility, as QPR are unlikely to stand in Swansea’s way if they do make a bid.

QPR are looking to offload many of their top earners, as they look to cut their costs to cope with another season in the Championship.

Fer admits that a deal is some way off at this current stage, though, as the two clubs need to open discussions.

"They're very happy with me right now, but they have to speak to QPR," he said.

"I was happy at QPR, but I always said I want to be playing at the highest league.”

Fer helped Swansea finish in 12th place in the Premier League table, after a strong end to the season.
