Meyer wants to be the pass master

Crystal Palace midfielder Max Meyer says he is ready to make the step up from the Bundesliga to the Premier League.

The 22-year-old joined Palace in August and is finally match fit after missing the end of last season with Schalke due to a contract dispute.

He has only started once in the Premier League in the defeat away at Bournemouth where he showed his superb passing ability.

Comfortable in the No.10 role or as a defensive midfielder, the Germany international is eager to show what he can do in England's elite division.

"Yeah of course this is a step up for me, everyone watches the games in the Premier League. The Bundesliga was good but I think the Premier League is better," he said.

"I think I can play both positions a little bit in front or behind it's not a problem for me. Last season I learned the defensive position and it's good for me because I can play offensively and defensively.

"Passing is my game, I don't want to lose any balls I like to have the ball and to play. I train very hard at passing and that's the result."

Nicknamed the 'German Messi', Meyer feels he has settled in at Palace after a difficult start following his free transfer from the Bundesliga runners-up.

"The first few weeks were very exciting, a new country, a new language, new teammates," he said.

"It was not so easy for me, but now it's very good. I have good fitness, everyone in the team helps me and I feel good.

"My new teammates have helped me a lot. At the start, I didn't know so many players here, just four of five, so it was not easy. But now it's better, I know everyone.

"I know the club perfect. London is an amazing, a beautiful city and I enjoy it every day, it's unbelievable."
