Argentine footballer Emiliano Sala died of "head and trunk injuries", an inquest in England heard Monday as it began to examine his death in a plane crash in the sea.

Brendan Allen, acting senior coroner for Dorset, adjourned proceedings in Bournemouth until November 6, for a pre-inquest review.

Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan is willing to pay for Emiliano Sala's body to be repatriated to Argentina.

His body was recovered from the seabed wreckage last week but pilot David Ibbotson is still missing.

The light aircraft was carrying Sala from Nantes to his new team when it disappeared near the British island of Guernsey, along with 59-year-old pilot David Ibbotson, who has not been found.

Arrests were made after clashes between fans at another game on Saturday, between Watford and Everton, police confirmed.

Despite Ibbotson not being found, poor weather conditions meant the search operation was closed, a spokesman for the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) announced on Wednesday.
