Kanu agrees new deal with Portsmouth

Nigerian striker Kanu has finally settled for signing a new one-year contract at Portsmouth - just before their season starts on Sunday with the FA Community Shield match against Manchester United at Wembley.

Kanu scored winning goals for Pompey in both the FA Cup semi-final and final last season and used those statistics as material to barter for a longer-term deal at the age of 32.

But he has settled in the end for exactly the same as this time last year - a new one-year deal with an option for an extra year if he plays a certain number of matches, believed to be around 20, this season.

Pompey, who have signed £11million Peter Crouch to partner £7million Jermain Defoe up front, would not budge on Kanu's demands for a longer contract because of the player's age and vulnerability to injury.

He said: 'I'm delighted to have signed. I've been with these players for two years now and the spirit is fantastic.

'The manager Harry Redknapp is the main man and I love the fans. They are the best in the league, like a 12th man in the team.

'And I want to score more goals than last season (only four in the Premier League) and more like my first season here (12).

'Above all I want to give 100% all the time.'

Kanu was signed by Redknapp on a free transfer from West Bromwich Albion in August 2006 after high-profile spells with Ajax, Inter Milan and Arsenal.

He is currently sidelined by a thigh injury and is battling to be fit for Sunday's Wembley clash.

He added on Portsmouth's website: 'I'm doing a programme with the physios and getting better, so I wouldn't want to rule myself out. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.'
