Barcelona midfielder Arda Turan leads Turkey's final 23-man squad for Euro 2016, with Nuri Sahin also making the cut despite an injury-plagued season.

Borussia Dortmund's Sahin had to wait until February 18 to make his first start of the campaign after a persistent tendon problem, managing just six subsequent starts in the Bundesliga.

However, Sahin makes Fatih Terim's final selection, along with Bayer Leverkusen ace Hakan Calhanoglu and surprise inclusion Emre Mor, who made his full international debut in last Sunday's friendly against Montenegro after impressing for Nordsjaelland.

Eight players, including Gokhan Tore of Besiktas and Galatasaray's Yasin Oztekin, have been cut from Terim's initial party.

Turkey start their Euro 2016 campaign against Croatia on June 12, before meeting Spain five days later and Czech Republic in their final Group D game on June 21.
