QPR have confirmed the signing of Leroy Fer from Norwich.
The Netherlands midfielder, 24, has moved to Loftus Road for around £7.5m and has signed a three-year contract.
Southampton were interested but with manager Harry Redknapp adamant that midfielders were urgently needed, QPR significantly upped their bid to ensure they got their man.
Meanwhile, Rangers are looking to complete the signing of Chile forward Eduardo Vargas from Napoli.
Vargas, also 24, is set to join on a season-long loan with a view to a permanent move.
