Aston Villa Jlloyd Samuel

The defender died in a vehicle crash this morning, the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association announced.

In a statement, Cheshire Police said Samuel died following a crash involving the 4x4 he was driving and a van at High Legh, near Warrington.

He switched allegiances to play for Trinidad and Tobago in 2009 and won two senior caps for the twin island republic.

"Our players will wear black armbands as a mark of respect tonight [in their play-off semi-final] and our thoughts are with his friends and family at this very hard time".

Former Trinidadian soccer player Jlloyd Samuel died on Tuesday, aged 37, in a traffic accident in England, the soccer federation of Trinidad and Tobago confirmed in a statement.

After nine years with Aston, the defender spent a season on loan at Gillingham before joining Bolton Wanderers for four seasons.

Jlloyd Samuel played for Iranian football team Esteghlal for three years and helped the Blues win title in Iran's Hazfi Cup in 2012 and Iranian league in 2013.

The English Football League tweeted: "The #EFL is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Jlloyd Samuel".

He collided with an oncoming vehicle, the association added.

Stan Collymore paid a heartfelt tribute to his former team-mate, who he described as a fantastic pro. May he rest in peace.

Samuel made more than 150 appearances for the club between 1998 and 2007.

Popular TV show Soccer AM were quick to pay their respects, offering their condolences to the friends and family of the late Jloyd Samuel.
