Fleetwood’s departing striker Wes Burns has been called up to Wales’ pre-Euro 2016 training camp.

The 21-year-old Welshman has just returned to parent club Bristol City but has bagged his second call-up to the national side following his successful loan spell at Town.

Burns was a key figure in Town’s survival quest netting five goals in 14 appearances.

He missed the last two games for Steven Pressley’s side due to a hamstring injury but joined the players on the pitch at the full-time whistle as they retained their League One status with Sunday’s 2-0 victory over Crewe at Highbury.

Wales boss Chris Coleman will run his eyes over 28 players in the Portugal training camp, which start on May 23.

Eight days later he will slim that squad down to the 23 to represent the principality in the summer tournament.

Wales face Sweden in a pre-tournament friendly on June 5 and then travel to their base camp in Brittany.

In Euro 2016 they have been drawn in Group B with Slovakia (June 11), England (June 16) and Russia (June 20).
