Body recovered from wreckage of crashed Sala plane

Sala was on board the Piper Malibu that tragically crashed into the English Channel after the striker joined the English Premier League team in a $19 million (£15million) deal.

The light aircraft was later discovered lying in the bottom of the English channel after days of endless search for the missing player and pilot.

Sala and pilot David Ibbotson were on board the Piper Malibu aircraft that went missing over the English Channel on January 21, carrying the player from Nantes to Cardiff ahead of his planned first training session with the team.

The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) said in a statement: "Following extensive visual examination of the accident using the remotely operated vehicle (ROV), it was chose to attempt recovery operations".

"The operation was carried out in as dignified a way as possible and the families were kept informed of progress".

'The body is now being taken to Portland to be passed into the care of the Dorset Coroner, ' a statement read.

A decision has yet to be taken on whether to raise the wreckage to the surface.

The AAIB confirmed video of the wreckage would provide "valuable evidence for [their] safety investigation" and an "interim report" would be published within a month.

The plane had requested to descend before losing contact with Jersey air traffic control.

The AAIB warned the weather is expected to be poor in the coming days, and so the overall operation is being ended.

The Argentine striker was the club's record signing.
