Just after midday the Netherlands international tweeted from his @LeroyFer10 account: “My last few hours as a single man. So happy to be marrying my “almost” wife Xenia @xlms_ .. I love you #XL”

He tied the knot at the Cathedral of St John the Baptist.

Scores of Canaries fans congratulated him on the news, amid sightings of football players including former Ajax striker Patrick Kluivert who was believed to have attended the wedding.

  • Give Leroy a break, with the right coach he can be our best player on a more reliable basis.... I heard from a friend who knows one of his friends who said that he is likely to go to QPR and that RVW is going back to Holland... however if Leroy stays and learns about working hard from the Ginger Pele he could be an amazing attacking box to box midfielder.... no-one else in our squad has so much potential.

  • Who cares anyway, footballers are so 1990s , not many people are interested anymore there are ar more interesting sports to follow where there are real sports men and women to take an interest in.
