London - Dutch international midfielder Leroy Fer became Premier League newboys Queens Park Rangers' latest signing on Wednesday when he joined from Championship outfit Norwich City.

The 24-year-old -- who was part of the Dutch squad that reached the World Cup semi-finals -- signed a three year contract with QPR.

Fer, who scored in the Netherlands 2-0 group stage win over Chile at the World Cup, spent just a season at Norwich, after moving from Dutch side Twente, scoring three goals in 29 appearances but was unable to stop them being relegated from the Premier League.

"Leroy's arrival is a massive boost for us," said QPR manager Harry Redknapp.

"He's another excellent signing and I'm delighted we've been able to get him to QPR."

Redknapp has already brought in veteran Rio Ferdinand, fellow central defender Steven Caulker and Jordon Mutch -- the latter two from Cardiff who like Norwich were relegated last season -- in the close season as well as Mauricio Isla on loan.

QPR, who were relegated from the Premier League two seasons ago, began their campaign with a 1-0 defeat to Hull last Saturday.
