Fer thankful for Norwich chance

Leroy Fer admits he is grateful to Norwich City for being given a chance in the Premier League.

The 23-year old Dutch midfielder joined the Canaries from FC Twente earlier this summer after his mooted move to Everton in January collapsed because of a failed medical due to a knee injury.

But now Fer has the opportunity to test himself in England's top flight and is loving his time with his new team whilst on pre-season tour in the USA.

"I'm very happy - I've been waiting for this moment for a long time," he told Canaries Player. "Chris Hughton told me that he's been following me for a long time so it's very nice to be here.

"I think the Premier League fits my qualities - I think they're good for this division. I want to help the club and I also want the club to help me become a better player."

He added: "My new teammates are very good and easy (to get on with). It's been very easy for me to fit in the group. The fans have been really amazing too - I'm getting lots of tweets already."
