Portsmouth confirms Kanu Exit

Trevor Birch on Monday confirmed that Nwankwo Kanu is no longer a Portsmouth player after his 14 day notice period on his contract expired.

The Pompey administrator also stated that he has asked the Football League for a tribunal to resolve the £3 million lawsuit issued by Samuel Okoronkwo over Kanu’s unpaid wages since 2006.

Football analysts said that hould the ruling be in favour of the Nigerian, then Portsmouth Football Club will surely die.

With Kanu walking out on Pompey, there are now only three senior players left at the club and Birch is hopeful that Liam Lawrence will seal a move to a Championship club this week. Dave Kitson and Tal Ben-Haim are still negotiating a payoff.

Whilst there has been plenty of talk of outgoing players, there has been some news regarding possible incoming personnel today.

Midfielder Simon Gillett has left Pompey and has opted to train with Nottingham Forest where he will be reunited with former Doncaster boss Sean O’Driscoll.

Michael Appleton has told winger Lloyd Sam and goalkeeper David Preece that they will not be offered deals. Luke Rodgers has been given another five days to impress after a groin injury sidelined the former Notts County striker during Pompey’s time in Spain.
