A Premier League club has growing concerns over their record signing after reports that a private plane has gone missing.
Cardiff City are concerned that Emiliano Sala, their record signing, was on a plane carrying him from Nantes.
The club had only unveiled their new strikers last side after he joined the club in a £15m deal from Ligue 1 club Nantes.
It is reported that the plane was travelling from Nantes to Cardiff, reports the Mirror.
It disappeared from radar in the English Channel last night.
A coastguard rescue helicopter and crews from Alderney and Guernsey RNLI were searching for the plane.
One journalist from Ouest France tweeted to say Sala had been on the plane - but there has been no confirmation.
According to the BBC, the disappearance was not in the UK search and rescue area, but two helicopters were sent to help.
A spokesperson for the coastguard said: "HM Coastguard helicopters from Solent and Newquay have been helping to search overnight with nothing found."
The Met Office say that "there were some showers around, but nothing too intense" when the plane went missing.
It is believed that the player returned to France after completing his move and was due to report for training in Cardiff on Tuesday.
Our colleagues at the Mirror have contacted Cardiff City for comment.
