News recently that Feyenoord have turned down a bid from Newcastle United for their central midfielder Leroy Fer.
Leroy Fer – Newcastle back with an improved offer?
Fer just recently received his first cap for the Netherlands last week, and the 20 year-old central midfielder has attracted interest from both Newcastle United and Everton.
But Feyenoord are in financial difficulties, and that could well help Newcastle make a deal, but the Dutch club still rejected the Newcastle offer for Fer, said to be around £4M, and they told the Tyneside club Fer was not for sale.
However, Dutch sources expect Newcastle to make an improved offer in the coming days, so we are hoping something comes of this.
We hope this story has some truth to it, because this lad looks like a great acquisition for Newcastle, young – already a good player, and lots of improvement still possible in the next couple of seasons as he matures.
The massive 6’2″ midfielder has played for Feyenoord 79 times with 10 goals so far in his career.
