Cheshire Uk, Football clubs across England where Gary Speed played have said they are stunned by his death.
The Football Association of Wales has told the BBC it appeared that Speed, the national manager for nearly a year, had killed himself. He was 42.
Speed began his career at Leeds United and was part of the side that won the old First Division title in 1992.
In a career that spanned two decades, he also played for Everton, Newcastle, Bolton and Sheffield United.
Cheshire Police confirmed he was found dead at 07:08 GMT at his home in Huntington, Chester. They said there were no suspicious circumstances.
Leeds United said the club was “stunned and saddened” to hear of his death. The flags at Elland Road are flying at half-mast as a mark of respect.
In a statement on the club’s website, Sheffield United – where Speed was made manager following the departure of Kevin Blackwell – said: “Everybody at Sheffield United is extremely shocked and saddened to learn of the death of former player and manager Gary Speed.
“Thoughts are with Gary’s family and friends at this distressing time.”
