Kanu has finally signed a new contract with Pompey!

It is 100% official, it cannot be questioned or doubted as it has come from the most official of places – the Pompey site.

I had lost patience long ago, but my belief has always been I simply wanted what was best for Pompey, if that meant him staying so be it – and so it has proved.

He finally signed his new contract today that will see him stay at Fratton for at least one more season. Then depending on him reaching the stipulated amount of games, which you would expect him to, during 2007/08 he will then get a further year.

He has already said that he always wanted to stay, as he has again since signing – which despite everything does appear to be the case, particularly his helping John Utaka come to Pompey with the things he told him – and has targeted bettering the 12 goals he scored last season.

The vast majority of his games will probably come from the bench, which is where I believe he can be very effective.

Does Kanu’s re-arrival mean that Harry Redknapp will now abandon his plans to sign another striker, or will he get another as well – my thinking is that we might, but it could be that we will make do with what we have until January?
