David Moyes lines up £8.6m Leroy 'Bouncer' Fer at Everton
Monday 28 January 2013
David Moyes, the Everton manager, is poised to complete his first signing of the January transfer window after the club agreed an £8.6m fee for the midfielder Leroy Fer from Steve McClaren's side FC Twente.
The Netherlands international is due on Merseyside to discuss personal teams and have a medical ahead of the move, which will go some way towards easing Moyes' frustration in the transfer market.
The 23-year-old, nicknamed "The Bouncer", is regarded as a combative midfield force. Fer made headlines last year when he spent £22,000 on a horse for his girlfriend, only to sell it swiftly when he discovered she would not be able to keep it, partly on account of living in a high-rise block of flats.
