New Manchester United, Newcastle, West Ham legends announced for FIFA 15

A raft of Premier League legends are set to join stars of world football in the next edition of EA Sports' popular football game.

EA Sports have announced that Manchester United stars Peter Schmeichel, Roy Keane, Newcastle and Blackburn legend Alan Shearer, West Ham's World Cup winning England captain Sir Bobby Moore, as well as Bolton's former playmaker Jay-Jay Okocha amongst many others will be included in the updated legends list in Fifa 15.

A popular if expensive part of Fifa 14's Ultimate Team gameplay mode is the ability to acquire some of the best footballers to have ever played the game and insert them into a team made up those currently starring in the Premier League and other club's around the world.

Superstars such as Pele, Paolo Maldini, Romario and Lothar Matthaus were included in the Fifa 14 versions released for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One, with plenty of Premier League icons also present covering a vast array of clubs.

And ahead of this season's version of the game, game developers EA Sports have announced another batch of footballing heroes set to join those that have proved elusive to those hoping to win the much in-demand legendary players.

Players can be allocated in packs within the game, or bidder for on FUT's online marketplace, with rare players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and the legends costing amounts running upwards of £100 in the game currency.

Below is a list of the new players announced for Fifa 15:

Peter Schmeichel, Roy Keane, Alan Shearer, Sir Bobby Moore, Jay-Jay Okocha, Brian Laudrup, Michael Laudrup, Laurent Blanc, Roberto Carlos, Hristo Stoichkov, Carlos Valderama, Andreas Brehme, Emilio Butragueno
