Three of Brazil's leading clubs will reportedly offer players to Chapecoense after the majority of their squad died in a plane crash.

Three of Brazil's leading clubs have reportedly said that they will offer players to Chapecoense after the majority of their squad died in a plane crash.

The Chapeco-based outfit were travelling to Medellin for the final of the Copa Sudamericana when their plane lost power and came down at around 10.15pm local time.

Colombia's civil aviation body confirmed that only six of the 81 people aboard the plane survived the crash, which was blamed on an electrical fault.

According to BBC Sport, Flamengo, Palmeiras and Sao Paulo are the clubs to have offered help, the latter adding that Chapecoense should be exempt from relegation for the next three seasons to help them rebuild their squad.

Defender Alan Ruschel and reserve goalkeeper Jackson Follman are the only two players thought to have survived the crash.
