  • Crystal Palace look set to complete a move for Max Meyer

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.

Indeed, in attempting to brief their fans about their new star signing, the official Eagles website ran with a photo not of Meyer, but of fellow German youngster Joshua Kimmich instead...

Meyer is a German worldwide who refused to sign a contract with Schalke after reports of a dispute with sporting director Christian Heidel.

Meyer is due to have a medical at Palace on Tuesday and is set to become the second free agent to join the club this summer after Vicente Guaita joined from Getafe.

In a post titled "5 Key Moments From Meyer's Career", Crystal Palace used a picture of Joshua Kimmich playing for Germany, rather than a picture of Meyer.

The collection includes several other cars used by the Royal Family- including one used by the late Diane, Princess of Wales. The model mirrors the Rolls-Royce that Meghan Markle , the Duchess of Sussex, took to Windsor Castle on her wedding day .

Meyer's time at Schalke came to an end after he fell out with the club hierarchy, who were not willing to meet his wage demands.

Between his first-team bow in 2013 and his departure, Meyer netted 22 goals and provided 24 assists for the Ruhr club, helping them to finish runners-up in last season's Bundesliga table.

The 22-year-old had a relatively quiet season last term, but has earned his wonderkid status over the past five seasons he has played for Schalke.

Meyer helped Germany win a silver medal at the 2016 Olympics before clinching the UEFA European Under-21 Championship the following year, where he was named in the team of the tournament.
