Crystal Palace are yet to get a deal over the line for the signature of Germany global midfielder Max Meyer, it has been claimed.

Former Schalke midfielder Max Meyer is on the verge of joining Premier League club Crystal Palace as a free agent.

Meyer - who will wear the No 7 shirt, the Selhurst Park club confirmed - was persuaded to move to South London after agreeing a contract worth £170,000 per week, which sees Palace move up to among the Premier League's biggest payers.

Meyer has signed a three-year deal with the Eagles, and becomes their third summer signing, following the acquisition of goalkeeper Vicente Guaita from Getafe and West Ham midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate earlier this summer.

Meyer came through Schalke's youth system, going on to score 22 goals and provide 24 assists in 192 appearances.

He will earn a reported £80k per week at Palace, less that what the club were paying Yohan Cabaye.

"I feel really good and I'm happy to be here", said Meyer.

"I played at Selhurst Park last season for Schalke and the atmosphere was flawless, and I can't wait to experience the atmosphere for a Premier League game".

Meyer, who can also play in midfield, was a first-team regular at Schalke for five seasons with the team finishing in second behind Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga last term and reaching the DFB-Pokal cup semi-final.

'I played at Selhurst Park last season for Schalke and the atmosphere was flawless, and I can't wait to experience the atmosphere for a Premier League game'.

Earning his first senior worldwide cap in 2014, Meyer had been prolific at youth levels for Germany and was an integral part of the side that won the silver medal at the 2016 Olympics.
