David Whyte (born 20 April 1971) is an English former footballer born in Greenwich who played in the Football League as a striker for Crystal Palace, Charlton Athletic, Ipswich Town, Bristol Rovers and Southend United.

He signed his first professional contract with Crystal Palace in 1989 and moved to Charlton Athletic on a permanent basis in 1994. He was the club's top scorer in the 1994 95 season with 19 goals. During that season it was widely reported that Premier League side Coventry City offered £1.5 million for Whyte's services, which the Charlton Athletic board rejected despite the club being deeply in debt.

Whyte retired in 1999 after short spells at several clubs, finishing up with Southend United.
