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."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
