French team Nantes have asked Cardiff City to pay the first instalment of the transfer fee for Emiliano Sala's ill-fated and record club transfer to the Premier League side, according to reports from the Welsh media.

Cardiff are said to be "surprised" Nantes have made the demand while attempts are being made to recover a body from the plane wreck that was carrying Sala and pilot Ibbotson.

Wales reported the French club have threatened legal action if the £15 million (NZ$28m) is not paid within the next 10 days.

A body has been recovered from the wreckage of the plane which crashed into the English Channel with Argentinean striker Emiliano Sala onboard.

The body was seen in the Piper Malibu N264DB on Monday, two weeks after the plane vanished near Guernsey.

Residents can expect temperatures to be well above average again Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service . We will see patchy freezing drizzle this morning and more widespread heavier freezing rain this afternoon.

Cardiff will honor the deal but have been reluctant to make a payment until they know "all the facts".

The Air Accident Investigation Branch says the body was recovered in "challenging conditions" with the "operation was carried out in as dignified a way as possible and the families were kept informed of progress".

Bordeaux will also receive a percentage of the fee, thought to be 50 per cent, because Sala played for them from 2012-2015 before signing for Nantes.

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.

Regional newspaper Ouest-France quoted an anonymous source at Nantes calling Cardiff's attitude "hypocritical", accusing them of "wanting to buy time".
