The News is reporting that Pompey are losing patience with Kanu and Svetoslav Todorov over the signings of new contracts - both of whom have been offered new 1-year deals.
The contracts on offer for the strike pair are for the initial year with the option of a second if they play enough games, but Kanu - in particular - seems very reluctant to accept the package on offer and seems unwilling to budge on his demands for something until 2009.
On the Kanu contract Pompey chief exec Peter Storrie told The News
'Nothing's changed. We've made Kanu an offer and it's in his hands.
'We think we've made an offer that's fair and reasonable.
'It's a year, with another year if he plays a certain number of games.
'We're waiting to hear back from his agent.'
The chances of seeing Todorov back at Pompey - and playing - let alone signing a new contract for most of last season looked bleak - to say the least. But after returning and getting a game - albeit from the bench - the signs were he would stay. But with Harry Redknapp admitting that he is 'looking for two new strikers' his chances could be limited again.
'We've made him and offer, and it's in his hands. It's for another year, with an option on that,' is what Storrie added on Todorov - so similar to the views on Kanu.
It is time Kanu, in particular put up or shut up, he either stays or he goes. The threats - he is meant to have made anyway - need to be followed up with by some actions or he signs the deal and gets on with it.
Todorov is assured of a place in Pompey's folk law - and I hope he does stay - but with the almost certain new arrivals Redknapp wants he may well find himself in the same position that forced him out on loan to begin with?
Have your feelings on this matter changed at all - where do we stand on the Kanu and Todorov issues?
PLAY UP POMPEY!
