Queens Park Rangers look set to lose the 26-year-old to Swansea City.
QPR look set to shift one of the club's big earners off the books as a switch to the Premier League outfit draws ever nearer.
The Dutchman seems to have enjoyed himself in South Wales following a season-long loan last term, repeatedly saying that he would love to stay with the Swans.
And the 26-year-old looks set to get his wish as Get West London report that QPR will bring in close to £5 million for Fer, who netted eight times during his two-year stint at Loftus Road.
Fer, who made 48 league appearances for the club, earns around £35,000 a week so that is another £1.8 million per year that the penny-pinching R's will save on the deal, the report claims.
If and when the deal goes through, QPR fans are unlikely to miss the former Norwich City man, who is indeed a good player but he did not spend long enough with the club to have courted much affection.
