Cardiff manager Neil Warnock and chief executive Ken Choo will attend Emiliano Sala’s funeral in Argentina on Saturday.
The 28-year-old had signed for Cardiff in a club-record £15million move from Nantes last month, but was killed when the private plane carrying him crashed in the English Channel near Alderney.
Sala’s body was recovered from the wreckage last Thursday. Pilot David Ibbotson remains missing, with funds being raised to continue the search, to which Cardiff owner Vincent Tan has made a personal donation of £50,000.
A club spokesman told Press Association Sport that Warnock and Choo will be part of a Cardiff delegation attending the funeral in the town of Progreso in the Argentinian province of Santa Fe.
Cardiff does not have a game this weekend as they are out of the FA Cup, and the club delegation is expected to be back in south Wales on Sunday or Monday.
Sala’s body will be repatriated to Argentina on Friday ahead of a wake at boyhood club San Martin de Progreso the following day.
