Ex-Sunderland and Ipswich Town goalkeeper, Marton Fulop, has died at the age of 32.
The former Hungary international had a tumour removed from his arm in 2013 but was cleared to continue his career.
He played 47 times for the Black Cats between 2006 and 2010 and last appeared for Town in 2011, making 38 appearances for the Suffolk club in all.
And Sunderland have paid tribute to their former goalkeeper.
“We are devastated to hear of Marton’s passing. He was a genuinely lovely man, liked and respected by everyone at the club during his four years with us,” the club’s chief executive, Margaret Byrne, said.
“It is desperately sad when we lose a member of our Sunderland family but to lose one so young and in such circumstances is simply heart-breaking.
“The thoughts and prayers of everyone at the club are with Marton’s family and friends at this terribly sad time.”
Fulop also played for Tottenham and West Brom and had loan spells at Chesterfield, Coventry, Leicester, Stoke and Manchester City.
