Former Norwich City midfielder Leroy Fer is confident he will not be relegated from the Premier League for a second season in succession.
The Holland international joined Queens Park Rangers in a club-record sale which could eventually be worth up to £10million for the Canaries.
The 25-year-old has been out of action for two months because of a knee injury but hopes to return against West Ham on Saturday.
Fer was part of the Norwich squad which was relegated from the top flight last season but is sure the Rs will not suffer the same fate.
'Sure, it gives me more motivation to keep Rangers in the Premier League. I can't go down two years in a row. But we need a big lift – and that starts Saturday,' Fer told getwestLondon.co.uk. 'We had a good team at Norwich, but with all respect, I think we have a better team with QPR now.

'Last year with Norwich it was okay until the last four games of the season. We can look at the table now, and say there's pressure but you have to look at yourself.'
Fer has scored four goals in 26 games for QPR so far this season and is determined to contribute more before the season ends.

'I don't want to say how many minutes I will be able to play if I am involved, but I will try to do everything I can until I can't anymore,' he told his club's official website.
'With just five games to go, I just want to throw everything into these games.'
