Nothing on Sky Sports, no changes to his Wikipedia page. But a absolutely quality player for Cardiff, arguably there main man for many years. 

There are various reports of his death online from many sources so sadly this appears to be true.

Still nothing confirmed?

Maybe the family have more important things to worry about that confirming the passing of a loved one to the media?

RIP, what a fantastic player. Would have loved to see him in a City shirt

Former Cardiff City midfielder Peter Whittingham has died aged 35.

The ex-Aston Villa player had been in hospital for more than a week after suffering a head injury in an fall in a pub in Barry.

Whittingham's former club Cardiff City confirmed the news.

"It is with an immeasurable amount of sorrow that we must inform supporters that Peter Whittingham has passed away at the age of 35. We are heartbroken," they wrote in a statement.

"The news of Peter's sudden and untimely passing has shaken us to our very foundation. Our love goes out to his wife Amanda, their young son and family. They are at the forefront of our thoughts and, on their behalf, we ask for their privacy to be respected at this unfathomably cruel and difficult time.

"First and foremost, Peter was a family man - and somebody who could light up a room with his sense of humour, warmth and personality.

"Then, as a professional footballer - as a Bluebird - he excelled with talent, ease, grace and humility. Nobody did it better.

"The loss of Peter will be painfully felt by our city, supporters and indeed all who ever had the pleasure of knowing him. We love you Pete and your memory will eternally stay with us."

Whittingham, started his career at Villa, where he played more than 50 league games and won 17 England Under-21 caps.

He joined Cardiff for £350,000 in 2007 and established himself as a club legend with 459 appearances and 98 goals before leaving in 2017.

Whittingham then moved to Blackburn Rovers, before leaving a year later.

But it is with Cardiff the stylish left-footed playmaker is most closely associated.

In his 10 years with the club, they reached the 2008 FA Cup final, 2012 League Cup final and won promotion to the Premier League in 2013.

Whittingham was a huge fans' favourite at Cardiff, scoring numerous spectacular long-range goals which helped earn him a place in the EFL's team of the decade for 2005-2015.

Loved & hated Kavanagh in equal measure & always felt he was a player we could of had. Both extremely classy players and Whittingham probably the best midfielder the championship has seen

Agree with this statement, not sure hated more envious and respectful of how good they were 

Kavanagh and Whittingham were outstanding. 

Such a sad loss only 35

RIP

Yes was always extremely envious, hated definitely the wrong word. 
 

Poor bloke, Cardiff have certainly had a tragic time of it lately.
