"I think from the club's perspective, we are managing the situation but we have another department that has to continue with looking at the transfers", Choo said.
Sala spoke about 30 minutes after Guernsey harbour master Capt. David Barker announced they had "taken the hard decision to end the search" while asking ships and aircraft to continue looking for parts of the light aircraft. There's still hope to find them alive.
His voice still trembled as he added: "For me, it is perhaps the most hard moment of my sporting life".
It has also emerged that Sala expressed concern about the plane to Nantes defender Nicolas Pallois, who dropped him off at the airport, which he said had been "bumpy" when he took it from Cardiff to France on Sunday, and also texted to say the plane was making "weird noises".
"Planes and helicopters have been over many times since Monday night, but they have not seen anything in that area", he said.
On Wednesday, Guernsey Police revealed four potential possibilities and said they were favouring the third option: "They landed on water and made it into the life raft we know was on board".
The chances of survival are rated as "extremely remote" by police.
"I have been in contact with officials from Cardiff and the player's agent over these hard past few days and will continueto do so", he told Britain's Sky Sports News.
In Nantes, supporters laid rows of yellow flowers and held club scarves aloft in the city centre late on Tuesday.
"We have spoken to the Premier League on how tough it is for us to cope given there are eight days to go (until the deadline) and we have been watching Emiliano for months and we got it over the line finally". I could never have imagined it would be the last time I spoke with him.
"I still have hope, he is a fighter", Nantes president Waldemar Kita tweeted.
Married dad-of-three Dave Ibbotson, 60, is believed to have been at the controls when the single turbine-engined Piper PA-46 Malibu disappeared off the Channel Islands.
The former girlfriend of Emiliano Sala is urging investigators on her social media to continue searching for Premier League football player Emiliano Sala, who is feared dead after his plane disappeared.
Guernsey Police's statement clarified that: "Although we are no longer actively searching, the incident remains open and and we will be broadcasting to all vessels and aircraft in the area to keep a look out for any trace of the aircraft".
"We also thank everyone involved with the search and rescue operation, and continue to pray for Emiliano, David Ibbotson and their families".
