Fer admits he’d still be open to joining Toffees.
FC Twente midfielder Leroy Fer has admitted that he is still keen on a move to Everton this summer, Sky Sports reports.
The 23-year-old came close to agreeing a move to Merseyside in the January transfer window but on deadline day Everton announced that due to “extensive discussions with both the club and the player in the past 24 hours it became apparent that the transfer would not be going ahead,” after concerns over a long standing knee injury put the deal on ice, though links between the two still remain.
And the Butch international has revealed that he would still be more than happy to consider joining the Premier League club even though David Moyes is no longer on charge and has confessed that the club are keeping in touch with him.
“Everton has done nothing wrong,” he told Dutch newspaper Volkskrant.
“During the second half of the season, they have always kept in touch with my agent. I’m still always open for a transfer to Everton.”
Fer made over 100 appearances during a four year spell with Feyenoord before joining up with Twente in 2011. He has quickly established himself in Enschede and has quickly found himself with two international caps for his efforts.
