Leroy Fer’s loan move to Sunderland has broken down after the Dutchman failed his medical, the Daily Star report.

The 25-year-old has suffered successive relegations with Norwich and QPR in the past two years and looked set for a move to the Stadium Light as part of Dick Advocaat’s new look side.

However, the midfielder has reportedly travelled back to London after Sunderland were reportedly unconvinced by his medical results - this is the second time in three years that Fer has failed a medical, doing so in January 2013 when his transfer to Everton fell through due to a knee injury.

He then went on to sign for Norwich later that year without a hitch, however spent long spells sidelined while at both them and QPR.

The Dutchman scored six goals goals and created 48 chances for the R's last season, with Advocaat's view to take on the undoubtedly talented midfielder and provide him with more game time.

It is also the second time this year that Sunderland have canceled a transfer due to a failed medical, with Nicolas Lombaert’s move from Russian side Zenit St Petersburg breaking down during his examination.

Sunderland appear to be setting prospective players through tougher tests to ensure no injury problems arise during the new season.
