Leroy Fer is excited about his move to Norwich City.

The former FC Twente midfielder signed for Norwich on the weekend for a mooted fee of €8 million.

"I think the Premier League is a great competition," said Fer. "I knew already that I would like to go to England and now it's actually happened. This is not only an ambitious club, but also a warm atmosphere.

"Norwich is a great place to live."

On playing with fellow Dutchman Ricky van Wolfswinkel, Fer added: "Ricky is excited about the club, it's ambitions and environment. He confirmed my first impressions. Norwich has that beautiful yellow shirt, a great look. I'm sure I will feel happy."
