    I believe he had cancer? No official news but twitter feeds all saying he has passed away. Did very well for us.

    I think he was 36 ? Still waiting for official news but it is all over Twitter. He did retire due to ill health I believe. Very sad news if true.

    Incredibly sad news, Deano was one of the best defenders I've seen in my time supporting Saints. Brilliant during Hoddle's reign. RIP big man

    Horrendous news if true. One of my favourite players in his day. RIP and thoughts with his family

    Player of the season in his first full one if IIRC.

    Only here for under two years, but made a real impression during his short stay.

    Tragic news for someone so young.

    RIP

    Hope this is a mistake, Deano was a great player for us and I was gutted to hear he had to retire (didn't he have a small brain tumour or something?). If he's gone, RIP.

    Shocking news if true(?), top top player for us and without his illness he would have been at the very top for years.

    Tragic news, but it still brings a smile to my face knowing how much we got off Spurs for him.

    F*ck, RIP big man. One of the players that really caught my eye when I started watching Saints, very talented but unlucky to have such a promising career cut short by such a sh!tty illness that's now cut his life short...

    RIP

    RIP big guy.

    Loved watching you in a Saints shirt; loved giving you stick when you were in a Spurs shirt too!

    Proper defender: big, strong, brave.

    No age at all. Thoughts go out to your family.

    Now on BBC: http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/9408254.stm

    Sad, sad news. Excellent defender for us who scored a few important goals as well. I think his arrival and partnership with Claus was the start of us having a more dependable defence and I was gutted when he decided to follow Hoddle to Spuds.

    He seemed a really honest player as well, the sort that fans can really take to.

    RIP.

    Horrible, sad news.

    Loved his last minute header v Sunderland in a 2-2 draw, the winner at Aston Villa,
    and his (deflected) winner in the epic 4-3 League cup game with Man City.

    News might have come too late for this afternoon, but I hope the club will mark the occasion with maybe a minutes applause. And a good old chant of "DEANO!! DEANO!!!" From The Northam.
