Before going on a European tour next season we will be embarking on a Nigerian Tour as part of our pre-season plans.
Harry Redknapp revealed to sky sports over the weekend that we will be spending time in Nigeria this pre-season, and will come up against our community shield opponents Manyoo whilst over there: 'I haven't told them yet but we will be going to Nigeria pre-season.
'I don't know if it's going to be a pleasant surprise for them but I think everybody enjoyed Hong Kong last year.
'We are going to play Manchester United out there (Nigeria). Apparently they want us out there and the thinking was that if it is good for Manchester United then it's certainly good for us.
'Then we come back and play United again at Wembley in the Community Shield and we're looking forward to that - but personally my only plan is for a holiday with my wife.'
King Kanu will be elated at this!
To be honest I was a little surprised when I first found out this, but I would suspect that this is in someway financially beneficial to the club, but I would also suggest that with so many African players in our squad, although our reputation has grown throughout African this will help it grow yet further...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
