QPR midfielder Fer ‘very disappointed’ after Sunderland move is scrapped

Leroy Fer’s agent Rob Jansen has confirmed that Sunderland called off a proposed loan deal for the QPR midfielder because of doubts about his fitness.

Fer, 25, was hoping to move to the Stadium of Light on a season-long deal but has been nursing an injury problem.

He will not be fit for the start of the season and Sunderland refused to go ahead with the move after the Netherlands international completed a medical.

“Leroy is currently confronted with an injury that means he is not able to play immediately,” Jansen said.

“Sunderland said ‘we do not want to go ahead’. Leroy is very disappointed. He is now trying to get fit at Queens Park Rangers.”

West Ham have also expressed an interest in Fer, who moved to Loftus Road from Norwich a year ago.
