Harry Redknapp has recently revealed that a clause within Kanu’s contract should allow Pompey to extend his contract into a second year. I thought this was common knowledge with it being revealed or at least partly revealed when the Nigerian signed but obviously it can’t have been?

“I took him a week before the season started and I was the only one who took a gamble,” Redknapp told Sky Sports News.

“He came here and he’s been absolutely brilliant for us. He has scored 10 goals. We love him here and we are looking to keep him here next season.”

“We are trying to do a deal to secure him this year and I think we have an option for next year if he plays 20 games – he’s probably played that as he’s been involved in almost every game this year.”

“So I think the second year would click in anyway.”

The clause or apparent clause would have kicked in so any fears that he would be able to talk to interested parties ahead of a free transfer in the summer have been put to rest haven’t they? Any move would now involve a fee. In any case Redknapp is insistent that offering Kanu a new deal is a priority, with a clause in a contract why would he need to?

There is always something with Pompey isn’t there things are never cut and dried.

PLAY UP POMPEY!
