The Premier League has revealed plans to launch a Hall of Fame, with the first two players to be inducted next month.
The Hall of Fame will "recognise and celebrate the exceptional skill and talent of players" who have played in the league since its inception in 1992.
Candidates must have retired and only a player’s Premier League career is considered.
Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters said: "Since 1992, the Premier League has been home to world-class players who have defined generations and provided us with compelling football season after season.
"A place in the Premier League Hall of Fame is reserved for the very best. It will be an occasion for our fans around the world to look back over the years and help us celebrate some truly exceptional playing careers."
The first two inductees to have their careers commemorated in the Premier League Hall of Fame will be revealed on Thursday 19 March.
A shortlist of nominees will also be announced at the same time, with fans invited to vote to help select the additional former players to join the Premier League Hall of Fame 2020.
Each inductee will receive a personalised medallion, engraved with the year of their induction.
