Jlloyd Samuel has died in a horrific accident

Former Aston Villa, Bolton and Esteghlal defender Jlloyd Samuel was killed in a auto crash in England on Tuesday. The former Premier League defender has died at the age of just 37.

The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association confirmed the devastating news on their official Facebook page.

"According to reports, Jlloyd was returning home after dropping his kids off to school and collided with an oncoming vehicle".

Samuel made 199 appearances for Villa between 1998 and 2007 before moving to Bolton.

Samuel won two global caps for Trinidad and Tobago, and also played club football in Iran between 2011 and 2015.

Former Premier League defender Jlloyd Samuel is confirmed to have died following a auto crash. "The TTFA and all his former teammates extends deepest condolences to his family in this most hard time".

He attempted to switch worldwide allegiance before Trinidad and Tobago played at the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

"At around 7.55am (0655GMT) police were called following reports of a collision involving a van and a Range Rover", said a statement from Cheshire Police.

Aston Villa confirmed players would wear black armbands as a mark of respect during their Championship promotion play off clash against Middlesborough on Tuesday night.

His family have been informed and are now being supported by specially trained police officers.

Samuel did not get clearance in time to join the Soca Warriors in Germany and it was another three years before he made his first senior global cap in red, white and black strip. Took me under his wing when I joined Villa and helped me settle. The Manchester United player said: "Absolutely gutted to hear the news of the passing of Jlloyd Samuel". Such a good guy on and off the pitch and a truly good friend. Thoughts with them, his wife Emma, and all his family'.

"I know our club will honour him tonight and remainder of the season. Rest in peace Jay".

The thoughts of everyone at the club are with his family and friends at this hard time.
