Leroy Fer scored with his single shot on target in Swanea City's loss to Leicester City.
His goal was an emphatic header off a well-struck cross from Modou Barrow. Fer's consolation goal means he now has scored two goals in his first three matches. He has been a reliable option in thus far but it's still too early in the campaign to label him a must-start in fantasy. A larger sample is needed before making him a weekly fixture in your starting XI. Aug 27 - 2:26 PM

The panic surrounding Swansea City's summer subsided for at least one day following a 1-0 away win against Burnley.

In his first match as a permanent Swansea player, Leroy Fer proved to be the difference by pouncing on a bobbled ball from Burnley keeper Tom Heaton in front of goal following a cross from second-half substitute Jefferson Montero with just eight minutes left to play in the match. Francesco Guidolin seemed to make matters more difficult for himself by excluding Gylfi Sigurdsson from the starting lineup after losing captain Ashley Williams and top scorer Andre Ayew in the past week, but Jordi Amat and Federico Fernandez led the defense to a clean sheet with Fernando Llorente up top barely missing out on his first Premier League goal.

Leroy Fer became Swansea City's first signing of the summer after the club made his loan from QPR into a permanent deal.

The Swans reportedly paid £4.5million to Queens Park Rangers for the midfielder who had been relegated in the two previous seasons with Norwich City and QPR before joining Swansea on loan in the winter transfer window. The 26-year-old made 11 appearances under Francesco Guidolin, whose half-term stay was also made permanent this summer. Fer's signing was quickly followed by the transfer of fellow Dutchman Mike van der Hoorn, a 23-year-old central defender from Ajax.

Swansea City are reportedly on the verge of striking a permanent deal with Queens Park Rangers that would see Leroy Fer staying in South Wales.

Fer came to the Swans on a loan spell back in January, and, with the pursuit of Joe Allen dying down now that Liverpool are valuing the Welsh midfielder at an even higher price based on his Euro 2016 performance, it looks as though the Jacks will be content in retaining Fer. The asking price by QPR is reported to be in the neighborhood of £4.75m. The Dutch midfielder helped Swansea creep up the table in the final months of the season after they were hovering in relegation danger when the calendar turned to 2016. Speaking of Dutchman, Ajax defender Mike van der Hoorn is said to be having a medical ahead of a move to Liberty Stadium, so that rumor which was reported here several days ago appears to be coming to fruition in the next couple of days.

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.

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.
