The family of Emiliano Sala are in danger of missing out on up to £600,000 in compensation for his death because Cardiff City made an error in registering his contract with the Premier League.

Chairman Mehmet Dalman has promised the club will be "honourable" over the deal but said they want to investigate "anomalies" in the transfer before making a payment.

It comes amid allegations that the agent representing Sala, Willie McKay, may have misrepresented interest from various clubs to help generate the highest fee possible for the player's transfer.

The Paris National Public Prosecutor's Office has confirmed the opening of a case of alleged tax evasion against FC Nantes owner Waldemar Kita amid an ongoing dispute with Cardiff City over the transfer payments for Emiliano Sala.

There are four alleged victims involved in this case with one of them being the subject of four of the counts. Avenatti maintained that the footage fell within the statue of limitations to be tried in criminal court.

"It stirred everyone up, but I have every confidence... that it will come to a conclusion in the near future". Certain things have been done which shouldn't have been done - certain things shouldn't have come out [in the media]. "I'm convinced Mehmet will bring this to a conclusion".

Warnock, who attended Sala's funeral in Argentina last weekend, was also full of praise for the way his players had reacted to the tragedy.

"The Telegraph understands Sala's Cardiff contract was deemed non-compliant with Premier League rules and was returned to them for him to sign an amended one", the report said, adding that such discrepancies were not uncommon. "Everybody came to the wake in the local village hall". They were talking about when he was four years old, seven years old.
