Reyes, who was part of Arsenal's Invincibles that went unbeaten on their way to winning the Premier League in 2003/04, was playing with Extremadura in the second tier of Spanish football prior to the tragic accident this morning.

The youngest player ever to play for Sevilla aged 16, Reyes went on to play for both Madrid clubs and Benfica before sealing a dream return to the Andalusian outfit in 2012.

He then played a season with Espanyol as well as turning out for Cordoba, Chinese side Xinjiang and most recently Extremadura, where he had signed a five-month contract in January.

In addition to the Premier League, Reyes won the FA Cup with Arsenal and won La Liga while on loan at Real Madrid in 2006/07.

Reyes later won the Europa League twice at Atletico Madrid and three times in a row with Sevilla. He was capped 21 times by Spain, scoring four times.

Our condolences go out to his loved ones at this tough time.
