QPR midfielder Leroy Fer has today failed his medical at Sunderland and will return to his parent club, according to SkySports.
Fer was set to move to the Premier League side on a season-long loan deal so he could continue to play Premier League football after QPR’s relegation last season.
Fer has experienced successive Premier League relegations in the last two seasons, first with Norwich City and then with QPR. However, this hadn’t put off Sunderland boss Dick Advocaat.
However, the move cannot happen at all now as Fer has failed his medical at Sunderland. Details have not yet emerged of a specific reason why Fer didn’t pass the medical.
QPR on the other hand may have been looking forward to getting Fer’s wages off their wage budget for the season, giving them more room to move in the transfer market. However, Fer looks set to remain a QPR player for at least another season.
