And the club revealed on Twitter tonight that they will display the special message of solidarity underneath the badge of their navy blue home kit for the match.

At least 129 people were killed when the seven coordinated attacks hit the French capital, including a suicide bomb blast at the Stade de France during the national side’s Friendly against world champions Germany.

The footballing world has been doing all it can to show its support for the people of France since last Friday’s events.

Both English and French players united ahead of their friendly at Wembley on Tuesday night to sing the French national anthem.

Both teams then stood intertwined around the centre circle to observe a minute’s silence for those killed in the attacks.
