Crystal Palace's Joe Ledley is to miss the FA Cup final and is a major doubt for Euro 2016 after fracturing a fibula.

The Wales international midfielder suffered what was a suspected Achilles injury in the recent 2-1 Premier League defeat of Stoke but it has since been confirmed as a more serious problem.

Palace have confirmed Ledley will be "continually assessed over the next few weeks" in the hope of a swift recovery, but he will miss the Cup final against Manchester United at Wembley on May 21.

The Football Association of Wales remain hopeful that Ledley can make their squad for the European Championships squad in France next month. Ledley was named in Chris Coleman's squad for the upcoming training camp in Portugal.
