Leroy Fer tips Luciano Narsingh to make a quick impact at Swansea City
13th January 2017
Leroy Fer believes rapid winger Luciano Narsingh will hit the ground running in the Premier League following his transfer to Swansea City.
Narsingh completed a £4million move to the Liberty from PSV Eindhoven on Thursday, with the 26-year-old becoming head coach Paul Clement's first signing since joining the club.
Fer played a big part in Narsingh's decision to snub interest from other clubs to join the Swans, with the midfielder having recommended a switch to the Liberty to his Dutch international team-mate.
And Fer is confident the Swans' new recruit, who will miss Saturday's clash with Arsenal due to a slight calf injury, will make a successful transition from the Eredivisie to the Premier League.
"He told me a few other teams were interested in him so he asked if Swansea would be a good place for him to develop," said Fer.
"So I told him my experience of being here - it's a fantastic club with really passionate fans, a good squad of players and excellent facilities.
"I'm really looking forward to playing with him at Swansea.
"If he is on his game then he can be very dangerous. He is a rapid winger who can beat a man and score goals, while he is perfect for a big striker.
"We have a big striker, so those crosses from the channels will be ideal for the likes of Fernando.
"Hopefully we can use him right, and if we do then he'll be a very good player for us.
"He will be a good addition to the squad, particularly as he can play on both sides."
