Crystal Palace close to Meyer, Kouyate double signing

Crystal Palace are close to securing the signatures of Max Meyer and Cheikhou Kouyate.

The former will complete his move once international clearance has been accepted. Meyer is a free agent after running down his contract at Schalke.

Kouyate was being shopped by West Ham United, with Sky Sports claiming the Hammers wanted £10m for the Senegal international.

With midfielders Yohan Cabaye, Bakary Sako and Chung-Yong Lee having left this summer, the double signing is a valuable boost for Eagles boss Roy Hodgson with just over a week until the season starts.
