    “The two parties have agreed to a further delay to the hearing in order to prepare their respective statements of case”.

    Makes you wonder what further ‘preparation’ they could possibly need!

    I don’t get anything to do with it, if he is our player dont the club cover them in some form of insurance? Would t that be standard procedure…..

    And if he wasn't our player because the contract wasn't properly completed - despite the announcement and photos - he would not be covered by Cardiff City player insurance. From all the thousands of pages of reports and opinions across great swathes of the internet, that was what I always understood to be the basis of the dispute.

    So, if we do have to pay for him, insurance pays up….what’s the fuss

    I imagine that our insurers are saying they require complete proof that he was our player. If he wasn't Nantes will require the same in order to pay out.

    I suspect the issue is more along the lines of the club not having completed the necessary insurance application but still having to fork out £15m on the transfer fee.

    I think there's a very good chance that's the case. He signed whatever he did sign and was announced on a Saturday afternoon/evening, and the plane disappeared early on the following Monday morning. I'm sure no insurers / brokers were working on a Saturday evening or Sunday to add him to the insurance.

    This is all supposition, guesswork and speculation.

    It is, although I work in insurance and know a bit about policies for professional footballers.

    That’s the point - nothing’s being said or concluded, so that’s all we have.

    City must be acting on the advice of their insurers and legal council. It would be stupid to pay them for advice and then not take it. If it was cut and dried that he was our player then this would have been sorted long ago, so there must clearly be room for doubt.

    It’s not. Sala was announced as our player and he died a couple of days later - they are facts.

    And yet the Prem League said he wouldn't have been allowed to play for us had he lived, due to incorrect/incomplete paperwork.

    To the best of my knowledge the club has done no wrong. It's a tragedy, but £15 million is a significant enough sum to warrant taking it through the courts. I'm pretty sure the Directors feel really uncomfortable too.

    He was in essence but not legally.

    Being registered for the Premier League and being our player (or not) are different things.
    Leicester had a player that couldn’t play due to missing the paperwork deadline.
    If Sala wasn’t our player, then it seems a bit niave of the club to have announced his signing.

    That doesn’t make what I said untrue and itscertainly not “supposition, guesswork and speculation”.
