The Dutchman was part of Louis van Gaal’s Netherlands squad for the World Cup in Brazil and scored a vital goal after coming on as a substitute against Chile to help the Dutch top Group B.

Following the Canaries’ relegation last season, Redknapp is hoping the lure of Premier League football can tempt the 24-year-old to come to Loftus Road.

Redknapp revealed Fer is one of a number of midfielders the club are considering but admitted negotiations with Norwich have stalled.

"He's a player we like but I don't know where that one is at the moment," Redknapp told Sky Sports News.

"It's been ongoing for a while but there are other people as well that we are looking at.

"I think we need a couple of midfield players and we have got other targets we are looking at.

"We need to strengthen in a few positions really to be strong enough to really have a go at it this year."

Redknapp is also hoping to bring in at least one forward with Charlie Austin, Bobby Zamora and Loic Remy currently the only three recognised strikers at the club.

t all started going downhill when they started putting a photo of the writer along side their story. Journalists started to think that 'they' are the story, rather than what they write. Smug, self obsessed & up their own arse's. That sums up the majority of newspaper sports reporters.

he reason so much sh*t is written about football is because there are so many people who want to read sh*t about football. Now shut up, take my money, and tell me Ronaldo is going to sign for Van Haal and that Mick McCarthy is signing Peter Crouch on loan.
