fer dddNews broke on Monday that Feyenoord were looking at their former academy graduate as a possible replacement for Tonny Vilhena, who is set to leave De Kuip in January. Any move would be a loan deal, due to Fer having a contract in England until 2017.

Speaking to Fox Sports, Fer’s agent Rob Jansen confirmed that Feyenoord are interested in the midfielder, but also stated that, although the move may be beneficial for his chances of reaching the Dutch national team, finances make the deal unlikely.

Jansen said when asked if a move to the Eredivisie would be wise, “In view of the Dutch national team. But the move to the Netherlands is not easy. It can happen, but it is not very likely. These two financial worlds are very far apart.

“Of course, Leroy and I talked about Feyenoord’s interest, but we are dependent on what QPR wants. Let’s first look at that,”

Fer played 103 matches for Feyenoord before leaving the club for FC Twente in 2011. Since then the midfielder has had a spell with Norwich City before joining QPR.
