Swansea, United Kingdom: Swansea City completed the signing of Dutch midfielder Leroy Fer from Queens Park Rangers on a permanent deal on Tuesday for an undisclosed fee.

The Netherlands international impressed head coach Francesco Guidolin while on loan at the Liberty Stadium last season.

The Welsh outfit are his third club in English football, after QPR and Norwich City.

"I'm very happy, from the first minute I felt at home," he told the club's website. "We did very good in the second half of the season.

"If we play like that, we can aim for higher, and that's what we want. Hopefully some new strong players (will) come in to help us.

"It makes it easier for me as well, if a coach wants you. (Guidolin) was surprised (at my ability), he said."

The 26-year-old was relegated from the Premier League at both Carrow Road and Loftus Road, but last season he helped Swansea recover from a poor start to the campaign to secure safety.

He scored eight goals in 50 QPR appearances, and has played for the Netherlands 11 times.
