Kanu signs on for 3-years!

Kanu signs on for 3-years!

Nothing have been 'officially' confirmed yet although it is commonly believed, with sky sports news 'understanding' - among others, that Kanu has put pen to paper on his new Pompey deal.

A 3-year contract had been mentioned and it is 'said' that it is indeed a 3-year deal that The King has signed?

This may sound ludicrous, especially as he is already 62 - unofficially 34 - although a 3-year contract on £10,000 per week is better than a 1-year deal on £30,000 per week. Yep I know we pay that money anyway, after 3-years, although it offers him stability and allows us to benefit from his qualities.

It is also commonly believed that his contract allows him to move into coaching over this time period, and lets face it the benefits of having him coach our players, so long as they do not pick up a too casual approach, would be fantastic - we also have the benefits of what his draw could do for us player recruitment wise, lets not underestimate just what pull The King has in Africa.

Quite if this contract was signed, if indeed it actually was, in time for him to be available to face Cardiff remains to be seen?

I guess we will find out soon enough...

    The BBC's live text (down at 14:16) says that Kanu hasn't signed yet - thought it odd that this hadn't appeared on the OS. Looks like Sky and The News jumped the gun!

    Baker has a Pompey future... apparently

    A few eyebrows were raised when Carl Baker, who continues to be linked with Coventry, was left out of the squad to face Walsall. I think we've all see then social media reaction?

    On this day in history...22nd August

    A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 22nd August.

    Improvement needed

    Milan Lalkovic, making his last appearance for Pompey since January, prior to a loan switch to Ross County, returned from injury to face his former club Walsall on Saturday.

    Match highlights - Pompey 1-1 Walsall

    Pompey are still unbeaten at Fratton Park - recovering from the defeat at Oxford - but unlike the Rochdale win we had to settle for a point after a 1-1 draw against Walsall on Saturday.
