Leroy Fer: Midfielder played in top flight with QPR & Norwich

Swansea have made up for the loss of Jonjo Shelvey by signing QPR midfielder Leroy Fer on loan for the rest of the season.

England midfielder Shelvey had been a key figure at Swansea in recent seasons, but left in a £12million deal to Newcastle.

But new Swans manager Francesco Guidolin has plugged the gap created by that sale with Holland international Fer.

However, the Italian will be hoping the 26-year-old can have a better impact than the one he had at his previous two clubs, having been relegated from the Premier League in the past two seasons, first with Norwich and then with QPR, who he joined for £8million.
