Former Aston Villa and Bolton defender Jlloyd Samuel has died in a car crash.

The 37-year-old, most recently player-manager of non-league side Egerton, died on Tuesday.

Samuel made 199 appearances for Villa after signing with the club in 1998, and played 83 times for Bolton between 2007 and 2011.

The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association said he had "collided with an oncoming vehicle".

"We are deeply saddened to hear of the death of our former player Jlloyd Samuel at the age of just 37 in a car accident," Championship side Villa said on Twitter.

"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 difficult time."

The Trinidad and Tobago FA continued on Facebook: "We've received some terrible news that former national defender and ex-Aston Villa and Bolton Wanderers player Jlloyd Samuel died in a car crash this morning in England.

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

"The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association and his former national team-mates at this time extends deepest condolences to his family members both in the UK and here in Trinidad and Tobago."

Samuel's former team-mate and Liverpool academy coach Michael Beale said: "Absolutely heartbroken to hear of the passing of my childhood friend and team-mate. A beautiful person."

Very sad stuff. For this to happen to somebody that is thirty seven years of age during a school run with his children really does leave you with a try throat.
