A deal was agreed for the 23-year-old Dutch international to go to Goodison Park in January but the transfer broke down because of a knee problem.

David Moyes has since been replaced as Everton manager by Roberto Martinez, but Fer has again been linked with a switch to Merseyside and he is excited about the prospect of playing in England.

"I haven't heard about anything but I think my manager did," said Fer, whose Holland side were knocked out of the European U21 Championship by Italy at the semi-final stage on Saturday.

"I think Everton are still interested in me.

"I would like to go to the Premier League this summer, it's a very nice competition - but my focus has been the European Championships, afterwards we will see."
