Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard is set to join Crystal Palace in a £14m Deadline Day move.

The fee for Edouard - who has agreed a five-year deal worth £70,000 per week plus bonuses with Palace - could rise to £18.5m.

The 23-year-old's former club Paris Saint-Germain are due a significant sell-on clause in the deal.

Sky Sports News reported on Monday that Palace had turned their attention to Edouard after refusing to match Arsenal's valuation for Eddie Nketiah.

Palace and Arsenal were far apart in their valuation for the 22-year-old, with the Eagles eager to sign a striker before Tuesday's 11pm deadline.

Edouard, who has started the season with two goals in four Scottish Premiership games for Celtic, is now Palace's preferred choice.

The 23-year-old came through the ranks at PSG's academy, and moved to Celtic permanently in 2018 after a loan spell at the club.
