The transfer of Leroy Fer to Everton has hit a snag, according to Twente chairman Joop Munsterman.

Reports from Holland, quote Joop Munsterman as claiming Everton to have thrown a spanner into the works, with regards to additional conditions on payment and transfer fee.

We´ve ran the various Dutch reports through translators, and we get;

Joop Munsterman: “We agreed a deal yesterday on the Leroy Fer transfer. Everton reported the agreed fee on the website and suddenly tried to renegotiate a deal today´”

“During the day they came to us with additional instalment demands and also new demands of the already agreed transfer fee”

´”We don´t play that game at Twente. They can come up with any demand they wish but we´re not playing along with their demands”

He also said that he wasn´t optimistic about any move for Filip Djuricic and Claudemir (who were ready to be purchased with the Fer transfer fee).

[UPDATE 21:38]
The Telegraph have reported the move to be in jeopardy after a long-standing knee injury caused concern during Tuesday´s medical.

Everton want further talks with his Dutch club regarding their initial valuation as the Merseyside club look to clarify the extent of the problem.

They have not pulled out of the signing, but it is understood they will seek more clauses in the deal to protect themselves lest the injury flared up again.
