But strong currents and winter weather forced them to call off the search before locating 59-year-old pilot David Ibbotson - the only other person on the Piper Malibu propeller aircraft.

David Ibbotson of North Lincolnshire was flying the Cardiff City player from Nantes to the United Kingdom when their plane crashed near Guernsey on 21 January.

Tributes have poured in for the footballer, who had just transferred to Cardiff, but never got to play with his new team.

"We would like to thank you for all your signs of affection and support in what is the most painful time of our lives".

But David Ibbotson, from Crowle, who was lying Sala to the United Kingdom to join Cardiff City, has not been found.

It was this search that resulted in Sala's body being found on 4 February, however, Ibbotson's body is yet to be discovered.

"That's why, like many fans, I wish to honour him by retiring the number nine".

"The homages paid to him nationally and internationally match the player and personal that he was".

British police said that the body retrieved from the wreckage had been formally identified as Sala.

After a series of search, the plane was found under the deep sea in the English channel after which the striker's body was identified.

Sala was on his way to join Cardiff City from Nantes when the plane crashed 21 miles (34km) off the coast of Guernsey on January 21.

"Any donations would be very much appreciated".

In Cardiff, the club's manager Neil Warnock said Southampton and Cardiff City players would wear black armbands in their English Premier League match on Saturday and a minute's silence would be observed before kick-off.

Hampshire Police's Football United account said on Twitter: 'Sad to say more than one arrest today of Saints fans for appalling gestures towards Cardiff fans, we will be working closely with Southampton to prevent this behaviour at football'. Sala's sister Romina said of him: "Your soul in my soul, it will shine for ever, thus illuminating the time of my existence".
