Leader of Leeds City Council Councillor Judith Blake said:

“I am deeply saddened to hear the news that Jack has passed away. He was a legend in English football and it is an absolute privilege that he spent his entire 21-year playing career at Leeds United. As well as being an amazing player, Jack was a true gentleman off the pitch. We will never forget him or his impact on the sport. Our thoughts are with his family, friends, former teammates and everyone connected with Leeds United at this incredibly sad time.”
