Norwich City have confirmed that Leroy Fer has joined the club on a four-year deal from FC Twente.

The versatile Dutch midfielder will add quality to the Norwich midfield for the upcoming campaign.

He becomes Chris Hughton's sixth summer recruit joining the likes of, Ricky van Wolfswinkel, Nathan Redmond and Martin Olsson.

Norwich's administrative efforts behind the scenes have allowed their transfer budget to expand and it would appear they could enjoy a fruitful campaign under the stewardship of Chris Hughton.

The recent departure of Grant Holt underlines the ambition of the club and that they are keen to get some fresh faces on board as they look to climb the league table for the 2013/14 season.

Hughton will be hoping to move on from last season's near miss with relegation and the signing of Fer reiterates this vision. As a manager he has scope and the ability to plan, as demonstrated by his previous employment with Birmingham and Newcastle.

Things look bright for Norwich and I wouldn't expect this to be the last of their summer transfer business. They have been linked with a move for Juventus and Italy striker Fabio Quagliarella who's reported worth is £6 million, again proving that Norwich have a serious intention of not only avoiding relegation, but competing in the Premier League and leaving their mark.

They show promise as a side and don't be surprised to see Norwich City rise the table next year for a top half finish.
