Norwich City midfielder Leroy Fer may have had a mixed season with the Canaries, but it ended on a high when he was selected for the Netherlands’ World Cup squad.

Dutch fans will be hoping that the 24-year-old can match his form of the early part of the season as he plays in a new-look side.

His chances of playing will have been improved by the loss of Rafael van der Vaart due to injury, but he will face stiff competition from former Manchester City midfielder Nigel de Jong.

We’ll be updating you with Fer’s movements as the tournament goes in our Where’s Fer column.
