Former Sale Sharks wing Selorm Kuadey died at the age of 24 last week as a result of what is believed to be suicide.  

A Sale statement read: "Sale Sharks  are shocked and deeply saddened to learn of the death last week of former player Selorm Kuadey.

"The 24-year-old joined the club in 2005 from Lancaster RGS and made his senior debut at Llanelli Scarlets in December that year.

"First-team opportunities on the wing were limited, but Selorm's first senior try came in April 2007, against Bath. Selorm battled against two long-term injuries before taking medical advice to retire from the game in late 2010.

"Last year, Selorm gained a first class Honours Degree in Human Biology & Infectious Diseases, and had recently been a Business Manager for an Orthotics company."

The club's chief executive Mick Hogan said: "Everyone at Sale Sharks passes their deepest sympathies to Selorm's family and friends at this very difficult and upsetting time.

"Selorm was a very popular young man and a wonderfully talented rugby player. We are devastated to learn about his tragic death and the club is offering our full support to his family, friends and former team-mates during this deeply traumatic period."
