According to reports in Germany, the Belgium Under-21 international died after the car he was a passenger in crashed on a motorway near Porta Westfalica in north-west Germany on Saturday afternoon.

Bild newspaper said the two other people in the vehicle had been taken to hospital with serious injuries after the car left the road and crashed into a tree amid heavy rain and wind.

A statement on www.belgianfootball.be read: “The football world today lost a great talent. Junior Malanda lost his life this afternoon, at the age of 20.

“The Belgian Football Association extends its sympathy to family and friends.”

Malanda, who joined the Bundesliga club from Belgian side Zulte Waregem in 2013, had reportedly been due to fly to South Africa on Saturday night for Wolfsburg’s winter training camp.

Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois paid his respects on Twitter.
