Tickets have gone on sale for Steve Harper's testimonial, which will see the goalkeeper return to St. James' Park to take on a team of AC Milan legends.

The former Newcastle keeper is to personally pick his own side of Magpies legends to compete against the Italians on Wednesday 11th September. 

It is believed that players such as Les Ferdinand, Faustino Asprilla and Alan Shearer will all return to Tyneside along with Harper in a game devoted to great causes.

The Great North Children's Hospital, Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and Newcastle United Foundation charities are all to benefit from the proceeds raised by this game.

Meanwhile, the San Siro side are also set to bring some world-class stars out of retirement for this match. Phenomenal players such as Paolo Maldini, Alessandro Costacurta and Andriy Shevchenko will all line up for the visitors, according to Newcastle's official club website.

Steve Harper spent two decades - and made 157 appearances - in the North East, before finally departing this summer on a free transfer to Hull City.
