Samuel passed away on Tuesday after being involved in a car accident in Cheshire.
He spent nine seasons at Villa Park, making 169 Premier League appearances, before moving to Bolton in 2007.
Samuel played 71 times in the PL for Bolton before moving to Cardiff City.
He scored two Premier League goals, both in 2003/04 and both in matches Villa played against Charlton.
Villa have announced they will wear black armbands on Tuesday night for the second leg of their Championship play-off semi-final against Middlesbrough.
Absolutely gutted to hear the news of the passing of Jlloyd Samuel. Took me under his wing when I joined Villa and helped me settle. Such a good guy on and off the pitch and a truly good friend. Condolences to Emma, his kids and the Samuel family. RIP J 🙏🏾❤— Ashley Young (@youngy18) May 15, 2018
