Jeffrey "Jeff" Whitefoot (born 31 December 1933 in Cheadle, Cheshire) is an English former footballer who played as a wing half in the Football League for Manchester United, Grimsby Town and Nottingham Forest. He was capped by England at under-23 level in 1954.

Whitefoot started his career as a trainee with Manchester United in 1949. When he made his debut against Portsmouth in April 1950 he was at the time the youngest player to start in a League match for United at 16 years and 105 days. In eight seasons at United, he made 95 appearances in all competitions and was a member of the 1952 and 1956 title-winning sides. He left the club for Grimsby Town in 1957, before moving to Nottingham Forest a year later, with whom he won the FA Cup in 1959. After Billy Gray's death on the 11th April 2011, Whitefoot (in his 78th year) is now the only surviving member of that cup winning team.
