Broken leg for Ledley


Crystal Palace have confirmed that Joe Ledley suffered a broken leg in Saturday's Premier League win over Stoke.

Ledley was introduced at half-time but was forced off just ten minutes into the second half following a challenge on Stoke's Charlie Adam. He looked to be in some discomfort as he walked from the pitch and scans have confirmed he fractured his fibula in the challenge.

The injury will prevent the Wales international from playing in the FA Cup final against Manchester United on May 22, while he also faces a battle to be fit for Euro 2016.

"The club can confirm that midfielder Joe Ledley sustained a leg injury in the game against Stoke City on Saturday, which saw him suffer a fracture of the fibula," a Palace statement read.

"He will be continually assessed over the next few weeks by the club's medical staff."

Ledley was named in the Chris Coleman's 29-man squad for a pre-Euro 2016 training camp in Portugal from May 24-29 and the Football Association of Wales has confirmed the midfielder's recovery will be monitored over the coming weeks.

"Joe Ledley sustained a fracture of the fibula at the weekend. He will continue to be assessed over the coming weeks," the FAW tweeted.
