The Dutch international joined the club from FC Twente in the summer and has gone on to feature in all but one of the Canaries' Premier League fixtures during the current campaign.

Howson admits that he has been impressed by how quickly Fer has adapted to the high tempo of the English game.

"He is an all-action midfielder who can do a bit of everything," he is quoted as saying by
