Newcastle have confirmed that Emre will link up with Turkey.Newcastle manager Graeme Souness has confirmed that Emre will link up with the Turkey squad.
Although the midfielder has been absent from the Newcastle side with a hamstring problem, Turkey are keen to assess the injury for themselves.
"Emre has gone to Turkey as requested by their FA, and we have been obliging," Souness told the club's website.
The Turkey international has played just three times for his new side, since joining from Internazionale.
Emre picked up the injury in the 2-0 defeat to Manchester United at the end of August and has been recuperating ever since.
