Crystal Palace midfielder Joe Ledley has been passed fit to be selected for Wales' Euro 2016 squad.

The 29-year-old will head to the European championships less than a month after breaking his leg in the Eagles' match against Stoke on May 7.

Ledley travels to France alongside Palace teammates Wayne Hennessey and Jonny Williams and hopes to be fit for his country's group stage games. Eagles midfielder Yohan Cabaye has already been picked for France’s squad.

Manager Chris Coleman said: "We can't say he is going to be ready, we don't know that. He's included because of what he brings to the squad.

"He deserves the chance. The conversation is, what stage of the group games will he be available for? He is in the squad because he is looking good. In the last three or four years he has been fantastic for us."

Wales play their first Group B match against Slovakia on June 11, then England five days later and Russia on June 20.
