"We've received some bad news that former National defender and Ex-Aston Villa and Bolton Wanderers player Jlloyd Samuel died in a vehicle crash this morning in England", the soccer federation said on its official website.

He collided with an oncoming vehicle, the association added.

The 37-year-old died when his Range Rover collided with a van in High Legh, Cheshire Police have said.

An athletic and composed left-footed player, he was earmarked as one of the country's most promising left backs and represented England at Under-18, Under-20 and Under-21 level.

After leaving in 2001, he went on to enjoy a four-year stint at Bolton-he played in the Premier League on 240 occasions for the two clubs-before spending the latter years of his career playing in Iran.

The statement detailed that Samuel's body was "discovered burnt" after the crash, and extended the "deepest condolences" to the player's family. May he rest in peace.
