Cyrille Regis, who enjoyed a brief but golden spell wth Chester FC in the 1990s, has died.

The PFA said via its official Twitter account: "Terribly sad news this morning that footballing pioneer Cyrille Regis has died aged 59". Our honest condolences go to his family friends and colleagues.

He joined Coventry City in 1984 and played in their 1987 FA Cup-winning team.

Former Manchester United star Andy Cole shared his thoughts on Twitter.

"Our deepest condolences go out to Julia and all of Cyrille's family and close friends". Genuine honour to have played on the same pitch as him.

After being born in French Guiana, Regis later relocated with his family to the borough Brent.

West Brom signed him for £5,000 in May 1977 and he made a spectacular start, scoring twice in a League Cup tie against Rotherham in September of that year.

Together with Laurie Cunningham and Brendon Batson, Regis formed part of a playing trio at the Hawthorns - dubbed "The Three Degrees" by manager Ron Atkinson - that were regarded as pioneering for black footballers.

The centre-forward scored a total of 158 league goals in 614 appearances for West Brom, Coventry, Aston Villa, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Wycombe Wanderers and Chester City and also earned five senior global caps before ending his 19-year playing career in 1996.
