Cardiff manager Neil Warnock and chief executive Ken Choo will attend Emiliano Sala's funeral in Argentina on Saturday.

The 28-year-old had signed for Cardiff in a club-record £15 million move from Nantes last month, but was killed when the private plane carrying him crashed in the English Channel.

Sala's body was recovered from the wreckage last Thursday.

Pilot David Ibbotson remains missing, with funds being raised to continue the search. Cardiff owner Vincent Tan has made a personal donation of £50,000.

Warnock and Choo will be part of a Cardiff delegation attending the funeral in the town of Progreso in the Argentinian province of Santa Fe.

Sala's body will be repatriated to Argentina on Friday ahead of a wake at his boyhood club San Martin de Progreso the following day.
