Newly signed Cardiff City soccer player Emiliano Sala was on board a light aircraft that went missing over the English Channel late on Monday, French police sources said.

Coastguards scoured the seas off the island of Guernsey on Tuesday for the plane after it lost radar contact on its way from western France to the Welsh capital.

The 28-year-old Argentine forward joined Premier League strugglers Cardiff City from FC Nantes last week for a club record fee of around 17 million euros (15 million pounds).

Sala has played in France since 2012.

Local coastguards were alerted by air traffic control that an aircraft with two people on board had gone missing.

Lifeboats and helicopters were sent out but the search was suspended four hours later as weather conditions worsened.

Search teams resumed work on Tuesday morning.

“At this time no trace of the missing aircraft had been found,” Guernsey police said.

A statement from Cardiff City chairman Mehmet Dalman released on Tuesday morning read: “We are very concerned by the latest news that a light aircraft lost contact over the Channel last night.”

FC Nantes officials did not immediately comment.

Sala had scored 12 league goals in 19 appearances for Nantes in France’s Ligue 1 this season before agreeing to join Cardiff.

French media reported that the French federation has postponed Nantes’s French Cup last-32 game against Entente Sannois-Saint Gratien from Wednesday to Sunday. (Reuters)
