Emiliano Sala plane missing
England–Cardiff City’s record new signing, Emiliano Sala, has been reportedly declared missing after a light aircraft he was on board, disappeared over the English Channel on Monday night, police sources told AFP.
Sala, signed by Cardiff on Saturday from Ligue 1 club Nantes for a reported 17 million euro ($19.3 million) fee, was flying to Cardiff aboard a small plane that disappeared from radars around 20 kilometres (12 miles) north of Guernsey, according to France 24 news.
A statement from police on Guernsey read:
“The search was terminated at 02:00, with all search and rescue assets being stood down, due to strengthening winds, worsening sea conditions and reducing visibility,” the statement said.
“At this time no trace of the missing aircraft had been found,” it added.
