CARDIFF City footballer Emiliano Sala is feared dead after his plane went missing over the Channel Islands last night.
Sala, 28, was onboard the Piper Malibu plane with one other person, when it lost contact at 8.30pm near the Casquets lighthouse, off Alderney.
Air Traffic Control confirmed the plane was travelling from Nantes in Western France to Cardiff when it vanished.
It followed severe weather warnings about snow and ice issued across France.
The Argentine footballer was believed to be travelling back from France after completing his £15million club-record transfer from Nantes to Premier League strugglers Cardiff City FC.
Cardiff’s out that £15 million then.
