Confirming the sad news on the West Ham website, a statement read: "It is with profound sadness that we announce that Martin passed away peacefully in his sleep at 4.00am this morning.

"A beloved husband, dad and granddad, and a kind, gentle and private man, we are devastated by his loss but so very proud of all that he achieved and comforted by the many happy memories we shared.

"We will be making no further comment and kindly ask that the privacy of our family is respected at this extremely difficult time."

Peters joined West Ham at just 15 and spent 11 years at the club, before moving to Tottenham in 1970.

At the time, Peters smashed records to become first player in Britain to sell for £200,000.

In 2016 it was announced that Peters had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.
