Body recovered from Emiliano Sala plane wreckage

Nantes are demanding their first payment for Emiliano Sala

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

Cardiff are said to be "surprised" Nantes have made the demand while attempts are being made to recover a body from the plane wreck that was carrying Sala and pilot Ibbotson.

The BBC were the first to report the news.

FC Nantes have demanded payment from Cardiff City for the first instalment of the £15 million transfer of Emiliano Sala, a source has confirmed to ESPN.

Wales reported the French club have threatened legal action if the £15 million (NZ$28m) is not paid within the next 10 days.

Cardiff have reportedly withheld payment until they are satisfied with the terms of the payment.

The aircraft remains 67 metres underwater 21 miles off the coast of Guernsey in the English Channel as poor weather conditions stopped efforts to recover it.

It is understood that the agreement between the clubs was to process the payments in instalments over three years.

The 28-year-old was on his way back to Cardiff from Nantes after saying his goodbyes to his old team-mates in France.

Sala's former club Bordeaux, who sold the Argentine to Nantes in 2015, are entitled to receive half of the total fee.

After a prolonged search, wreckage from Sala's plane was spotted last weekend and the Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB) have undertaken an investigation into the cause of the crash, as well as examining the logistics involved in raising the aircraft from its position 67m beneath the surface.
