Leroy Fer has confirmed he is not thinking about leaving Norwich City following the club’s relegation from the Premier League.
The Netherlands international joined Norwich last summer from FC Twente and made 29 appearances in the top flight as the club failed to avoid the drop into the Championship.
Fer is currently on World Cup duty and he scored in the Netherlands’ 2-0 win over Chile on Monday which secured top spot in Group B.
The 24-year-old is focusing his efforts on the national team in Brazil, but he has insisted that he remains committed to Norwich.
“We had a really disappointing season and getting relegated was a bad moment for everyone at the club,” said Fer.
“For myself, it’s a difficult feeling to come away with Holland and forget about what happened at Norwich. But I have had to refocus on the World Cup because this is a different situation to my club.
“Whatever happens here in Brazil, I am a Norwich player. I am contracted to them for the next three years so my commitment is to them.
“I am not thinking about anything else at the moment other than going back to Norwich for the new season.”
