Crystal Palace midfielder Joe Ledley has proven his fitness to be name in Wales' Euro 2016 squad.

Manager Chris Coleman has named his 23-man squad for the tournament, which includes Champions League winner Gareth Bale. The Real Madrid will be expected to join up with the squad on Tuesday evening.

Ledley has not played since fracturing his leg earlier this month against Stoke City. Coleman revealed that the midfielder has done all he can to prove his fitness.

"He looks very, very good. He trained in the grass all week with the medical team in Portugal and looked very, very good. Like anybody would, he wants to be a part of things and he’s a big part of tis team and the work he’s put in is incredible."

Wales play Sweden in their final warm-up game on Sunday in Solna. Six days later, on June 11th, Wales begin their Euro 2016 campaign against Slovakia in Bordeaux. On June 16th, they meet England in the highly-publicised Group B game in Lens.
