The Guernsey police said that after scouring for 15-hours, the rescue teams saw "a number of floating objects" in the water.

A large-scale sea and air search was immediately launched but called off several hours later due to strong winds and worsening sea conditions.

The latest update on the search comes from Sky News, who claim that the operation has now turned into a rescue mission after rescue crews have failed in their lengthy search for the missing plane.

Over the weekend, the Cardiff City football club posted a video of Sala on its Facebook page.

Cardiff City had announced the signing of the Argentinian striker on Saturday for a reported fee of £15 million ($19 million) - a record signing for the Welsh club.

The search for the plane which disappeared over the Channel Islands while carrying Cardiff City striker Emiliano Sala is now a recovery effort rather than a rescue operation, according to the Channel Islands Air Search. We expected Emiliano to arrive last night into Cardiff and today was due to be his first day with the team.

Mobile phone coverage could also be affected in rural communities, as well as a "small chance" of power cuts due to the weather. The Met Office has issued three warnings for Thursday and Friday - one amber and two, slightly less severe, yellow.

The police said they had found no signs of those on board, and that if the aircraft landed on water, the chances of survival were slim.

"I am not expecting anyone to be alive", Channel Islands Air Search chief officer John Fitzgerald said. "I'm imagining that people in a light aircraft wouldn't be wearing particularly warm clothing, and so it is concerning because if they're in the water, their chances of surviving are diminishing all the time".

It lost contact while at 2,300ft and disappeared off radar near the Casquets lighthouse, infamous among mariners as the site of many shipwrecks, 13km north-west of Alderney. "Dad, how scared am I!"

Sala, 28, was flying to Wales to join English Premier League club Cardiff City, officials said.

Sala has scored 13 league goals this season in all competitions for Nantes this season. "We don't know very much at this point but I'm still hopeful that it's not over and that he is somewhere to be found".
