Detectives investigating the death of Cardiff signing Emiliano Sala have arrested an individual on suspicion of manslaughter by an unlawful act, the Dorset (England) Police Department announced on Wednesday.

Detective Inspector Simon Huxter, of Dorset Police's Major Crime Investigation Team (MCIT), said: 'We have carried out a wide-ranging investigation into the circumstances of the death of Mr Sala and continue to work with partner agencies including the Civil Aviation Authority.

'He is assisting with our enquiries and has been released from custody under investigation.

The Cardiff City striker was killed when involved in a plane crash days after securing a club-record £15m transfer from Nantes in January.

Cardiff City fans unveil a flag in front of tributes for their £15 Million forward Emiliano Sala after the search for the missing Footballer and pilot was called off after rescuers failed to find their plane at Cardiff City Stadium on January 24, 2019 in Cardiff, Wales. The body of pilot Dave Ibbotson has not yet been recovered several months later, though he is officially presumed dead.

Firmino was kept quiet by Venezuela's defence with Yordan Osorio and Mikel Villanueva neutralising the Liverpool striker. Brazil found the net three times, but all of their goals were disallowed - two upon the advice of the video assistant.

On 7 February, Sala's body was brought to Portland Port in Dorset, where Dorset Police have been carrying out enquiries into the circumstances of the death.

Another English police force in Wiltshire, west of London, said this month that two people were facing charges over a photograph showing Sala's body at a mortuary.

The report said that they had tried several times to speak to Mr Henderson "but he has not issued any comment".

After travelling to Cardiff to complete the deal, Sala returned to northern France to collect belongings and bid farewell to his teammates.

However, a crowdfunding effort supported by thousands of donations, including from football stars such as Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe, helped launch a private search.
