Aston Villa midfielder Karim El Ahmadi is full of praise for Norwich City's Leroy Fer.

Fer has earned a Holland recall this week after impressing with the Canaries.

"I played with Aston Villa against Norwich City and Leroy Fer was there," said El Ahmadi.

"He is really a big boy, you know. He is made for English football, which is a ninety-minute rampage. I knew immediately that he'd make it in England."
