Emiliano Sala is feared dead: desperate hunt for missing plane

A light plane with new Premier League footballer Emiliano Sala on board has disappeared in the English Channel while travelling from France to Wales.

The 28-year-old Argentine was on his way to meet his new colleagues at Cardiff City after signing for the club last week in a €19 million deal.

He was travelling back to Wales from Nantes in Brittany after signing with the Welsh club.

There were ‘genuine concerns’ for his safety today after the Piper Malibu plane registration PA 46 went off radar screens close to the Channel Islands.
