Cardiff are to appeal to Court of Arbitration for Sport over FIFA’s decision to order the club to pay Nantes Sh675 million of the transfer fee for Emiliano Sala.

The sum corresponds to the first instalment that Cardiff were due to pay the Ligue 1 club in January, as per the deal agreed for the transfer of the Argentinian striker.

Sala had signed for Cardiff for a Sh1.9 billion fee but died in a plane crash in the English Channel on January 21 as he was flying to the Welsh capital to start training with the then-Premier League side.

Cardiff had refused to pay the transfer fee after Sala died, arguing that as there were details in the club’s employment contract with him which were still to be concluded, the transfer had not been finalised.
