Feyenoord to consider re-signing Swansea City midfielder Leroy Fer if they lose Vilhena this summer – reports

Swansea City midfielder Leroy Fer could return home to the Netherlands to rejoin Feyenoord this summer.

It’s understood Fer will become Feyenoord’s main target should they lose highly rated midfielder Tonny Vilhena this summer.

Vilhena has been linked with a number of European clubs with a departure before the start of the new season looking very likely.

According to Voetbal International, Feyenoord will then turn their attention to Swansea City midfielder Leroy Fer to replace their outgoing talent.

Fer left Feyenoord in 2011 following four years in the first team and a further eight years in their youth ranks.

The midfielder joined the Rotterdam club at just nine years old, eventually departing 12 years later to join Eredivisie rivals FC Twente.

Since his departure, Fer has gone on to play for Norwich City, Queens Park Rangers and current club Swansea City, whom he joined in 2016 after a successful loan spell.

Fer has made 60 league appearances in total during his time in South Wales, including 26 appearances in all competitions last season.

However, he missed the second half of the season through a serious injury and following relegation, those appearances may be his last in a Swansea City shirt.

Especially if he is offered a return home to Feyenoord, who will undoubtedly remain close to his heart after playing such a huge part in his professional career.

Fer joined Swansea for a fee in the region of £4.75 million back in 2016 and while he is valued at a greater price following a relatively successful spell, Feyenoord may be able to agree a similar fee given Swansea’s desire to reduce wages and introduce fresh blood.

The Rotterdam club are also hoping to secure returns for two other players this summer, including Daryl Janmaat and Jordy Clasie.
