Brazilian legend Pele will visit St George's Park next month as an honorary guest to present England's player of the year award.

Pele will present the major honour during the inaugural ceremony on February 3 and will remain in the country to watch England's friendly with Brazil at Wembley three days later.

The presence of one of football's greatest ever players is a significant coup for the English Football Association's 150th anniversary celebrations and a number of other high profile figures are also expected to attend.
