Leroy Fer: Keen to move to Premier League after being linked with Everton

A deal was agreed for the 23-year-old Dutch international to go to Goodison Park in January but the transfer broke down because of a knee problem.

David Moyes has since been replaced as Everton manager by Roberto Martinez, but Fer has again been linked with a switch to Merseyside and he is excited about the prospect of playing in England.

"I haven't heard about anything but I think my manager did," said Fer, whose Holland side were knocked out of the European U21 Championship by Italy at the semi-final stage on Saturday.

"I think Everton are still interested in me.

"I would like to go to the Premier League this summer, it's a very nice competition - but my focus has been the European Championships, afterwards we will see."

stark contrast to Neymar's treatment at Barca his first year. He was brushed off to the flank and told to stay there. I thought it was a bit harsh from Martino to margianalize Neymar like that, but good grief, it's better than woshipping him like his national team does.
