Pompey pair closer to leaving
The positions of Svetoslav Todorov and Kanu have been made even clearer by what Pompey chief exec Peter Storrie has said in The News about the two strikers.
'Toddy and Kanu have got until June 30 before their existing contracts run out.
'After that they can sign what's on offer or go on week-to-week deals. The deals are there, it's really up to them if they want to stay with us'.
I think that we can say it is a near certainty that Kanu will not sign his contract before the end of the month - so he is gone.
Todorov looked odds on to sign a new deal, but with this still to be signed - despite seemingly being on the table since before the 2006/07 season even ended - this too is looking increasingly unlikely now. So I think it is more than likely that he will be gone too?
Kanu will never accept - or go onto - a rolling week to week deal so June 30th is the day Kanu will go.
Todorov could stay on such a deal - if he does not sign the year long one on offer - until he found a club, but I would not think he will have that much trouble fixing himself up with a Championship side. I am still hopeful that Todorov will stay but do not hold out much hope now.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
