Football League Chairman, Greg Clarke said: "The Football League is deeply saddened to learn of Sir Tom's death and I offer my condolences, on behalf of all our clubs, to his family and friends, including all those at Preston North End.

"He was quite possibly the finest player to have ever played in The Football League and was a true gentleman. He was also the epitome of the one club man with few people ever having contributed as much to a single team, their city or our competition.
