Everton to splash cash on Fer

Everton to splash cash on Fer

Well, what a whirlwind day for Everton. When we wrote to expect a new signing at Everton we didn't expect it to happen that quickly!

In the morning, we reported the David Moyes was hoping to tie up the signing of at least one new addition at Goodison Park.

You could tell as he sounded pretty confident that something was in the pipeline, but we didn't imagine that by lunchtime we'd be reading that Everton had agreed a deal with FC Twente for Dutch international Leroy Fer!

The 23-year-old midfielder is reportedly set to cost us £8.6million, but that of course is subject to personal terms being agreed and undergoing a medical.

The Post believe he's already agreed terms and is set to sign a four-and-a-half year contract at Goodison Park.

"I was told about Everton`s interest the day before they played Southampton. I watched the game the day after and I saw the potential in the group. Fer told the Post.

He continued: "I have looked at the players in the squad and love the way they play. Everton are in the top five and have a real chance of playing in Europe next season.

"From when I was a young boy, I always wanted to play in the Premier League. The fact I am going to do it with one of the biggest teams in the Premier League makes this move even more special."

Terrific signing, perfect addition to the midfield. He is made for this league, physically should thrive in this league, the lad is a big, strong lad, stands at 6'2, but the lad has a bit of pace about him, when I have seen him play for Twente, reminded me a bit of Yaya Toure, of course, if he even turns out half as good as Toure, then it will be a brilliant bit of business by Moyes. Cant believe the board has stumped up the cash, real statement to Moyes and our players about our ambitions for 4th place, and from the sounds of it, we aren't done either!!!! Welcome to the Peoples Club Leroy Fer!!!!
