Emiliano Sala: Nantes demand transfer fee from Cardiff City

Emiliano Sala: Nantes demand transfer fee from Cardiff City

A Nantes supporter stops by a poster of Argentinian player Emiliano Sala outside La Beaujoire stadium after the footballer went missing in January.

Sala, 28, was travelling from France to join up with his new Premier League club in a light aircraft on January 21 when it went missing close to the Channel Islands.

According to the BBC, Cardiff have withheld the first scheduled payment until they are satisfied with the documentations.

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

Cardiff are reported to be committed to honouring the deal but not until they have been provided with sufficient documentation.

The BBC also report that Nantes are threatening legal action if they do not receive the first payment from Cardiff in 10 days.

Robinson, a leader on the Chiefs team that won Super Bowl IV in 1970, played 12 seasons with the Dallas Texans and Kansas City. James also has recorded the most seasons in franchise history with at least 1,000 rushing yards as he's done it five times.

Cardiff are said to be "surprised" with the timing of the demand so soon after the tragedy.

The £15m fee is due to be paid in instalments over three years.

Cardiff is looking into details about who owned the plane and who insured it as investigators work through weather difficulties to recover the body that's been seen inside the wreckage, and they intend to meet their transfer obligations to Nantes, according to the Mirror report.

Bordeaux, Sala's previous team, are thought to be due 50% of the transfer fee as per the terms of the deal which had taken him to Nantes.

In a statement, the AAIB cautioned that "strong tidal conditions mean we can only use the remotely operated vehicle for limited periods each day and this will mean that progress is slow".
