Body recovered from wreckage of Emiliano Sala plane

A large portrait of Emiliano Sala is displayed outside FC Nantes' Stade de la Beaujoire

The striker and pilot were on board the Piper Malibu N264DB aircraft which went missing more than two weeks ago between Nantes and Cardiff.

Sala, Cardiff's record signing, is feared dead after a plane travelling from Nantes to south Wales lost radar contact near Guernsey on January 21.

A body has been recovered from the wreckage of the plane which crashed into the English Channel with Argentinean striker Emiliano Sala onboard.

An underwater camera showed one occupant was visible in the wreckage.

Nantes have allegedly threatened to take legal action if Cardiff do not pay them within 10 days, although reports from Cardiff suggest the club will honour their agreement with the Ligue 1 club. BBC have attempted to speak to Nantes for a comment.

A source at the Welsh club says the contract will be honoured but not before Cardiff have clarified "all the facts".

The transfer fee is reportedly set to be paid over three instalments, and Cardiff are reportedly surprised that Nantes have requested the money while Sala has still not been officially found.

The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) said in a statement: "Following extensive visual examination of the accident using the remotely operated vehicle (ROV), it was made a decision to attempt recovery operations".

An AAIB spokesman said, per the Evening Standard: "We are attempting to recovery the body".

It continued: 'Unfortunately, attempts to recover the aircraft wreckage were unsuccessful before poor weather conditions forced us to return the ROV to the ship.
