Norwich Set to Sign FC Twente Midfielder Leroy Fer for £7m: Daily Soccer Report

Norwich City are close to signing FC Twente midfielder Leroy Fer for £7million. The 23-year-old Dutch international is a central midfielder who has been compared to Patrick Vieira.

Fer almost joined Everton in the January transfer window, but the signing fell apart when he failed a medical.

  1. Gaffer.

    I like the addition of the “Beginners Guide”I do have a suggestion if you don’t mind?
    Any chance you could add this info to the “Spurs” page?

    The club is known as the “Spurs” Lliywhites is more of a pre 1950 nickname, even then, not as widely used as “Spurs”.

    I did just grabbed this from Wikipedia real quick…not trying to disrespect what someone else wrote…perhaps re-word but keep the milestones?

    Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, commonly referred to as Spurs, is an English football club located in Tottenham, London, that plays in the Premier League.
    Founded in 1882

    Tottenham won the FA Cup for the first time in 1901, making it the only non-League club to do so since the formation of the Football League. Tottenham was the first club in the 20th century to achieve the League and FA Cup Double, winning both competitions in the 1960–61 season. After successfully defending the FA Cup in 1962, in 1963 it became the first British club to win a UEFA club competition – the European Cup Winners’ Cup.

    In 1967 it won the FA Cup for a third time in the 1960s. In the 1970s Tottenham won the League Cup on two occasions and was the inaugural winner of the UEFA Cup in 1972, becoming the first British club to win two different major European trophies.

    In the 1980s Spurs won several trophies: the FA Cup twice, FA Community Shield and the UEFA Cup in 1984. In the 1990s the club won the FA Cup and the League Cup. When it won the League Cup once more in 2008, it meant that it had won a major trophy in each of the last six decades – an achievement only matched by Manchester United.

    Also mention Bill Nicholson as he changed the way football was played by bringing fast on the floor passing game…with great success.

    Just an observation
