Leeds United have had many greats don the coveted no.4 jersey in their proud history. And then, there were also the likes of Scott Wootton and Rodolph Austin.

When football resumes the current crop will have the chance to make themselves legends by returning to the hallowed land of the Premier League and staying there for as long as possible.

Here's a look at the seven greatest number fours in Leeds' illustrious and proud history...

Olivier Dacourt

Olivier Dacourt, Slavisa Jokanovic

Olivier Dacourt is remembered most in England for his time at Leeds, where he was part of the high-flying team of the early 2000s.

He joined from Lens in 2000 for a club record fee of £7m and won over many supporters with his tenacity and ball-winning style. The Frenchman helped the club reach the Champions League semi-finals and finish in the top-four of the Premier League during his time at the club.

However, following manager O'Leary's departure, he fell out with successor Terry Venables, leading to his departure to Roma in 2003.

Jimmy Greenhoff

Before he became a Stoke City legend, Jimmy Greenhoff began his career at Leeds and briefly donned the number four jersey before Billy Bremner.

He was only 16-years-old when he made his debut in 1963 and became a key attacking figure in Don Revie's famous Leeds team of the 1960s. They narrowly missed out on the First Division title in 1965, finishing just below Manchester United on goal average.

The Whites' manager began to convert him into a centre-forward and Greenhoff thrived, helping the Peacocks defeat Arsenal 1-0 to win the 1968 League Cup final. This would be one of his final acts before departing for Birmingham City later that year.

Greenhoff is regarded as one of the greatest Englishmen to not represent his country, and while he made his name at the Potters, it was Leeds where he broke out first.

Alf-Inge Haaland

Now known to younger football fans as the father to rising star Erling Braut Haaland, Alf-Inge will be remembered by many Leeds fans as a combative player in his own right.

He joined the Whites in 1997 and spent three years at the club, playing in both midfield and defence for the Peacocks. The Norwegian international was part of the team that qualified for the Champions League in 1999/2000 while also reaching the semi-finals of the UEFA Cup. Haaland was also remembered for his feud with Roy Keane, who was then at rivals Man Utd and once proclaimed: "I really dislike [Man] United and I can't stand their players."

This endeared him to Leeds fans and he was included as one of the 100 greatest Leeds players in a 2004 poll, despite playing just 75 games for the club.

David Batty

Playing over 300 league games for Leeds over two spells, David Batty is a certified legend for the Whites.

He made his debut for the club in 1987 and impressed manager Bremner, who saw him as a similar player to himself - a combative midfielder who could win back and tidily distribute the ball for his team. Batty made over 200 appearances for the Peacocks before departing for Blackburn Rovers in 1993.

He returned five years later and added experience to a Leeds side that challenged for European football regularly under David O'Leary. The England international helped the team make the semi-final stage of both the UEFA Cup and Champions League before retiring in 2004.

Trevor Cherry

You don't find many players brave enough to leave one club for their local rivals. And yet, that's what Trevor Cherry did.

Leaving Huddersfield in 1970, he became the starting left-back with injuries hitting the Peacocks hard, and he would marshal the left flank for the successful First Division-winning season of 1973/74. 

After suffering from injury himself, the following season would see him snuff out football legend Johan Cruyff in Leeds' European Cup semi-final win over Barcelona, only to miss out on selection for the final.

Following teammate Bremner's departure, he became captain of the club and played on for another six years for the Whites before leaving for fellow Yorkshire club Bradford City in 1982. Overall, Cherry made nearly 400 league appearances for Leeds in total.

Peter Lorimer

Peter Lorimer

Remembered for his 19 years playing for Leeds, Peter Lorimer is a strong addition to the illustrious list of names who wore the number four for the Whites.

Making his debut in 1962 at the tender age of 15 years, it took three years for Lorimer to become a regular for the Peacocks. He played like a trequartista, tending to drift upfield behind the strikers to score and create for his teammates. And his shot was lethal, registering speeds of up to 90mph and earning him the nickname of 'Thunderboots'.

He scored 30 goals in the 1967/68 season, as his team went on to win the League Cup that year. Not wanting to stop there, the Scot regularly played as Leeds lifted the First Division in 1969. Another 29 goals came in the 1972 FA Cup-winning season, before lifting the top-flight title again in 1974.

Lorimer has remained involved with the club since retiring, working as a pundit for local radio covering their games, and even acted as a board member in the early 2000s.

Billy Bremner

Voted the greatest Leeds player of all-time by a poll from 2006, Billy Bremner was an all-round midfielder who did it all for the Whites.

An academy product of the Peacocks, he made his debut in 1960 and became an ever-present figure in the club's first team, taking the captain's armband in 1965. He played every game under Don Revie in the 1968/69 season as Leeds captured the First Division title and won the Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year award in 1970, despite failing to win a trophy that year. It wasn't long before Bremner tasted success again, lifting the 1972 FA Cup and the First Division again in 1974.

The Leeds legend came back to manage the club in 1985, but only lasted three years before being sacked and replaced by Howard Wilkinson.

In total, the Scot spent about 16 years at the club, playing a total of 773 games for the club. He was inducted into both the English and Scottish Football Hall of Fames' and was voted the greatest captain in Football League history in 2013.
