Newcastle visit Norwich’s Carrow Road on Wednesday, July 26, for Craig Fleming’s testimonial match and the Canaries’ club captain is crossing his fingers David Beckham signs for the Magpies.

Fleming: “It would be fantastic if they could get him, especially after Michael Owen getting injured and Alan Shearer retiring.

“I’ve been hoping they were going to sign somebody big before the game. Newcastle have been linked with some big names and they don’t come any bigger than David Beckham.”

City have only sold 5,000 tickets for Fleming’s testimonial, and the Norwich player is desperate to see United take some big names to Carrow Road to boost attendances.

Prices are £15 for adults and £10 for concessions (senior citizens, students and under-16s) in Jarrold Stand centre seating and the City Stand lounges. All other seating is £12 for adults, £7 (senior citizens, students and under 16s) and £3 for under-12s.
