"We are deeply saddened to hear of the death of our former player Jlloyd Samuel at the age of just 37 in a auto accident", said a post on Villa's official Twitter account.

Police, fire engines and an air ambulance were called to the scene at 7.55am but Cheshire Police later confirmed in a statement that "the driver of the auto, Jlloyd Samuel, 37, from Lymm, died at the scene".

Former Aston Villa and Trinidad and Tobago defender Jlloyd Samuel has died. He played two full worldwide matches for Trinidad and Tobago in 2009.

"Sadly, the driver of the vehicle, Jlloyd Samuel, 37, from Lymm, died at the scene", a police statement said.

They added: "His next of kin have been informed and are now being supported by specially trained officers".

According to police, a man, 54, sustained serious injuries and was taken to hospital after the crash.

He said the IGP's plan is to put the suspects under duress to change the statements they already made in Ilorin and made to implicate him and the kwara state government.

"The TTFA and all his former teammates extends deepest condolences to his family in this most hard time".

Samuel was born in Trinidad before moving to England where he represented London Schoolboys teams.

Football players who knew Samuel took the chance to send condolence messages through social media.

Samuel spent almost a decade at Villa Park before joining Bolton in 2007.

The 37-year-old made 169 Premier League appearances for the Villans from 1998-2007 and spent four years at Bolton before playing in Iran for Esteghlal and Paykan until 2015.

Villa later confirmed their players will wear black armbands in Tuesday's Championship play-off semi-final second leg with Middlesbrough as a mark of respect for Samuel.
