Swansea City will be without Alberto Paloschi and Leroy Fer this weekend when they host Liverpool and the duo are a doubt to play again this season.
Both players were brought into the Welsh club during the January window, Paloschi as a transfer and Fer on a loan deal, and neither could really help turn things around for the Swans. Since arriving in time for Wewk 24, Paloschi has two goals to his credit while Fer notched two assists. The Swans look safe to stay up this season but have really fallen off the cliff the past couple of weeks, losing to Newcastle and Leicester by a combined score of 7-0. Bafetimbi Gomis has a chance to lead the line again for the Jacks though Andrew Ayew could be deployed up top. Ki Sung-Yueng has been a peripheral figure the past couple of months and may get an opportunity now to see more pitch time in the midfield. Apr 28 - 3:10 PM

Swansea have moved to fill their Jonjo Shelvey-sized hole in midfield with the loan signing of Leroy Fer on loan from Queens Park Rangers.

Widely rumored to be staying in the Premier League, Dutch international Fer had to wait half a season to return to England's top flight. The move is a solid one for a club that has recently righted a ship that has been sinking for much of the season. Fer should be a solid addition who provides a box-to-box presence with slightly less outrageous talents than Shelvey but with significantly more reliability. If Fer can stay healthy and in the line-up, he is a solid fantasy addition in draft leagues as a starting-quality player.

Leroy Fer's potential move to Sunderland from relegated QPR looks like it is coming closer to reality in the form of a year-long loan.

The Black Cats have a lot of work to do to avoid a fourth consecutive dramatic relegation escape. Dick Advocaat appears to be looking to a Dutch international to help bolster his midfield with Leroy Fer firmly in his sights. Fer has been relegated in consecutive seasons with Norwich and QPR but he is a quality player that fantasy managers should consider picking up on waivers if they have a need in midfield.

Dick Advocaat is on the verge of adding signings five and six to the Sunderland squad, with midfielders Yaan M’Vila and Leroy Fer poised to sign…

Sunderland are hoping to conclude deals for midfielders Yaan M’Vila and Leroy Fer this week, taking their summer signings to six. Reports in France say Ruben Kazan’s M’Vila is to undergo a medical in the next 24hrs following a bust up with the Russian club and will be available for next weekend. In addition, the Black Cats are looking to bring in QPR’s Leroy Fer on a season loan. Fer has been relegated in his last two seasons – Sunderland fans will be hoping that is not an omen – and despite paying £8m for the Dutch international a year ago, QPR are keen to cut their wage bill. That will make it two center-backs, a right-back, two midfielders and a winger added this summer. With a center-forward still on the wish-list. Exciting times at the Stadium of Light…

Leroy Fer scored a great goal to give QPR a consolation win despite being already relegated.

QPR have already been relegated but they gave their fans something to cheer for as they defeated Newcastle 2-1. Leroy Fer and Matt Phillips were the heroes for QPR while Emmanuel Riviere gave Newcastle hope with his first goal of the season. Newcastle are now deeply involved in the relegation race as a Hull City win could see them relegated in the final week of the season.

Leroy Fer returned to first team action for QPR with a goal in a losing effort against Liverpool.

It may be a bittersweet return to the starting line-up for Leroy Fer. He scored but it appears all but certain that Queens Park Rangers will be relegated. Fer's performances this season when he was healthy have probably been good enough that he will find a job elsewhere in the Premier League for next season. That said, this will be his second consecutive relegation which, at some point, has to earn a player a reputation as not quite good enough regardless of how his individual efforts might appear.

Leroy Fer scored a goal, had one disallowed and had another well-saved by Simon Mignolet but he couldn't stop QPR from dropping a 2-1 decision at Anfield.

The writing is on the wall for QPR. With Leicester City, Sunderland and Aston Villa all picking up three points in Week 35 the Rs failure to even pick up a point looks like it may doom them to relegation. With three matches to play, Chris Ramsey's men sit 7 points from safety. Probably time for Leroy Fer and Charlie Austin to start looking for new clubs for next season.

Queens Park Rangers finally managed to ditch their proverbial monkey on Tuesday at the twelfth attempt winning their first away game of the season at the Stadium of Light but the victory came at a cost with the loss of Leroy Fer to a nasty looking knee injury.

Fer has been a solid performer throughout the season and it was his opener on 17 minutes which set Rangers on their way in only Chris Ramsey’s second game in charge. The Dutchman has scored 4 times this season and on each occasion the Hoops have picked up points [W3 and D1] and his overall contribution cannot be underestimated so the sight of the midfielder being stretchered off after twisting his knee will be the cause of some concern – in addition Matty Phillips is to be assessed after limping off early in the second half. The game against Sunderland will also be remembered for Joey Barton’s seventh consecutive yellow card – a Premier League record!

Queens Park Rangers climbed out of the relegation zone as goals from Leroy Fer and Bobby Zamora gave them a first away win of the season against Sunderland.

Not many predicted QPR could produce a performance like this with no away wins, no manager and no Charlie Austin for the trip to Sunderland, but produce one they did. It was fully deserved victory as the visitors outfought the Black Cats all over the pitch, taking the lead when Leroy Fer met Matty Phillips's right-wing cross with a firm downward header. It was 2-0 right on half time thanks to a hooked volley from Bobby Zamora and it was a lead held on to the end of the match. The result moves QPR out of the relegation places, with Sunderland still deep in the relegation fight just two points above the drop zone.

Leroy Fer struck a cannon blast for goal to give QPR the initial advantage over Swansea City, but the Swans would level thing late as the two pick up a point apiece in the 1-1 final.

The last two fixtures for Rangers were at home, where Charlie Austin had been in superb form, but they could only muster one goal from 180 combined minutes against Swansea and Crystal Palace and Austin played no role in it. Instead, the only goal came from Fer, and it was a cracker. Fer found some space to dribble into an area he felt comfortable shooting from and he struck the ball dead solid perfect into the top corner of Lukasz Fabianski's goal. With three goals and four assists, Fer is the only Ranger not named Austin that is offering any respectable fantasy production this season.

Combined with a win by Burnley this afternoon, Queens Park Rangers 1-0 loss to Newcastle United sees them dead last in the Premier League.

Rangers have just 9 points through the first dozen gameweeks and it appears clear that whatever ideas Harry Redknapp has in mind clearly are not working. He has several players good enough to play in this league but there seems to be no direction in their attacking or defending. It will be an interesting transfer window for QPR. Unless they show signs of righting the ship by the end of the festival season, it may be time to hold a fire sale. Hosting Leicester next week, it could be do or die for Harry at Loftus Road.

Queens Park Rangers continue to add Premier League experienced players to their promoted side, now having signed Leroy Fer from Norwich City for three years at a reported £8m.

The move is a good one for QPR and Fer alike. Fer is too talented to spend a year in the Championship and Rangers were in need of an upgrade in central midfield. The addition spells the end for Alejandro Faurlin as a regular with Fer slotting straight in to partner the enigmatic Joey Barton in the middle. Fer has goals in him, he scored one for the Dutch as a substitute in his very limited pitch time at World Cup 2014.

Queens Park Rangers are hoping to complete a deal to sign Norwich City midfielder Leroy Fer for a fee of around £8m

Despite Norwich's relegation, Fer had a very decent debut season in the Premier League and he would be a good signing for any of the promoted clubs. QPR seem to be heading the list of suitors, with Redknapp desperate to add to his central midfield options before the transfer window closes.

QPR manager Harry Redknapp has confirmed Norwich midfielder Leroy Fer is one of a number of players he is hoping to add to his squad before the start of the Premier League season.

Despite Norwich's relegation, Fer had a very decent debut season in the Premier League and he would be a good signing for any of the promoted clubs. QPR seem to be heading the list of suitors, with Redknapp desperate to add to his central midfield options ahead of the new season. A striker is also a top priority, with only Charlie Austin, Bobby Zamora and Loic Remy on the books at this point in time.

A goalless match heading into its final quarter hour turned in favor of the Netherlands who were able to score twice and win their group in a 2-0 win over Chile.

The breakthrough goal came from yet another substitute in World Cup 2014, Norwich City's Leroy Fer, who was given a free header as he leaped high into the air and directed it home with authority in the 75th minute. Arjen Robben, one of the top players thus far in the tournament, would assist the second goal in stoppage time to seal the deal. The Dutch attack, which is full of talent but sometimes scrutinized for their cohesion, look like they have the chemistry to cause any defense problems going forward, especially with Robin van Persie coming back after serving his suspension here.
