The contract of Kanu is up, or is at least believed to be up?
A new contract, on much reduced wages, has been offered to 62-year-old Kanu although it is 'said' by his 'advisors' that he feels an automatically triggered contract, on his old wages, is in place.
Apparently a 'verbal agreement' is in place over this contract, although this is something that Admin Andy, quoted in The News, says the club will challenge legally if needed: 'I spoke to Kanu's agent earlier this week on this issue. He has thrown something into the pot that he has actually got an extension.
'I'm afraid we need to look at the legal position and go from there. Unfortunately, it seems this extension has been verbally agreed - and not fully documented.
'There are question marks over what verbal variations have been incorporated.
'As we are continuing to find, the legacy issues at this football club are huge.
'This latest situation is something we need to address. We want Kanu to stay and have offered him a new contract, which we want him to sign. But I am afraid the club comes first.'
Sadly, for Kanu, verbal contracts are not valid really are they - if only they were! I can only hazard a guess that the person verbally agreeing this was a certain Storrieteller...
As much as I appreciate what Kanu has done for us over the years, not that I think he cannot forget what we have done for him too mind, I find it in poor taste, given our situation, that money that he was previously on is still sought now should he stay.
Had there been some physical documentation of this, which is 'appears' there is not, then that puts a different complexion on this - as it is Kanu does not seem to have much of a leg to stand on...
This is of course an issue that we need to clear up quickly though as 'if' he has triggered a new contract then he will take up one of the places in our squad, if he has not then this gives us a little more room to manoeuvre, assuming we get these numbers below 20 - we, and he, then decide if we want him as part of this on the reduced wage.
