The tribute on the official @England Twitter account read: "We're devastated to hear the news that Ugo Ehiogu has passed away

Our thoughts and sympathies are with all lucky enough to know him."

Ehiogu's former club Villa, for whom he played more than 300 games, tweeted: "We are deeply saddened to hear of the death of our former defender Ugo Ehiogu.

"Our thoughts are with his family at this terribly sad time."

The club added: "We will be holding a minute's applause before our derby with @BCFC...

"Both sets of players will wear black armbands as a mark of respect."

His former Villa team-mate Lee Hendrie told Sky Sports News: "To find out he has passed away, it must be devastating for his family.

"Ugo was such a character

He has always been that bubbly character.

"He was just a great guy to have around."
