Republic of Ireland Manager Martin O’Neill has named a 30-man provisional squad for the upcoming friendly against Turkey later this month.

Captain Seamus Coleman returns to the squad following his leg break against Wales over a year ago.

Five players face the possibility of receiving their first senior international call ups with Goalkeeper Kieran O'Hara from Manchester United, Declan Rice from West Ham United, Enda Stevens from Sheffield United and Blackburn Rovers duo Darragh Lenihan and Derrick Williams all included in this provisional squad.

Preston North End striker Seani Maguire will be looking to score his first senior international goal for his country, having had a successful period at club level following his return from injury netting three times in two games for the Championship side.

Republic of Ireland 30 man provisional squad:

Elliott, Doyle, O'Hara, Westwood; Coleman, Christie, Doherty, Rice, Egan, Duffy, Clark, Long, Pearce, Lenihan, Williams, Cunningham, Stevens; Judge, Hourihane, Hendrick, Arter, Meyler, O'Kane, Kelly, Browne, Horgan, McClean; Long, Hogan, Maguire
