Former Tottenham player Anton Walkes has died at the age of 25.
His club, the American side Charlotte FC, confirmed his death in a tweet on Thursday afternoon and said it was “devastated”.
Walkes died after a boat crash in Miami, according to the Miami Herald.
The player was a graduate of Spurs’ academy and made one appearance in the League Cup, but never made the Premier League first team.
He also played for Portsmouth and Atlanta United.
The MLS tweeted: “There are no words to describe the sorrow of everyone in Major League Soccer today after learning of the tragic passing of Anton Walkes of Charlotte FC.
“Anton was a talented and dedicated player who was loved by his teammates and fans.
His former club Atlanta said it was “heartbroken” and called him “the epitome of a great teammate with a personality that lit up every room he entered”.
