Rescue workers have called off their search for the missing plane carrying Emiliano Sala, Guernsey’s harbour master has said.
Captain David Barker said on Wednesday that the chances Sala and his pilot David Ibbotson had survived were “extremely remote”.
The aircraft has been missing since it disappeared from radar over the English Channel on Monday night.
After scanning thousands of square miles and reviewing all “information available” the “difficult decision to end the search” was taken, Captain Barker said.
Earlier on Thursday, Cardiff CEO Ken Choo revealed the club has spoken to the Premier League about the possibility of being given extra time to find players.
Choo says the authorities have decided not to provide special dispensation and that the club will continue to work towards the January 31 deadline, in what he admits are “tough” circumstances.
He told talkSPORT: “From the club’s perspective we are managing this situation but we have another department that has to continue with looking at transfers.
“We are trying to co-ordinate with the authorities and yet we are still running a business which continues, we still have to meet the [transfer] deadline.
“We have spoken with the Premier League on how tough it is for us to cope given there are eight days to go and we have been watching Emiliano Sala for months and we got it over the line finally.
“We have eight days to go and we don’t really know how to cope in this scenario, we have to meet the deadline, the bottom line from the Premier League is that you have to meet the deadline like everyone else.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
