"Our thoughts remain with them at this difficult time. HM Coroner will continue to investigate the circumstances of this death supported by Dorset Police,'' a spokesman for Dorset Police said according to Sun UK.
Sala began his professional career in France with Bordeaux, making his professional debut in February 2012.
And after struggling to break into the first team, he was loaned out to Championnat National side Orlans and Ligue 2 side Niort in consecutive seasons.
He joined Nantes in 2015 and made more than 100 appearances in Ligue 1, finishing as the club's top goalscorer for three consecutive seasons.
Sala was on the verge of making a name for himself in the Premier League before his untimely death.
Nantes allegedly threatened to take legal action if Cardiff failed to pay them within 10 days, although reports from Cardiff suggested the club would honour their agreement with the Ligue 1 club.
