Jeffrey George "Jeff" Chandler (born on 19 June 1959 in Hammersmith, London) is an English-born former professional footballer who played twice for the Republic of Ireland.

He was a left-sided midfielder who in his club career played for Blackpool, Leeds United, Bolton Wanderers (twice), Derby County, Mansfield Town before joining Cardiff City in November 1989 for a fee of £15,000. But after appearing in just 28 games for the Bluebirds, he was forced to retire due to injury.

Whilst with Bolton he appeared in the 1989 Associate Members Cup final against Torquay United, where the Trotters won 4-1 to win their first trophy in 31 years. He had a hand in one of the goals when his deflected shot went in off Gulls player John Morrison.
