Harry Redknapp has revealed that he will attempt to help save his former club Portsmouth from being shut down.

The npower League One outfit have been set a deadline of August 10 by administrator Trevor Birch to have their finances in order or face going out of business. Ex-Pompey boss Redknapp plans to speak to Nwankwo Kanu, who has lodged a claim for £3million in pay, to see if he can persuade the former Arsenal striker to compromise with the club.

He told ESPN: "I will be ringing Kanu to see if there is anything I can do. I signed him for Portsmouth on a one-year contract and Tony Adams told me: 'You must be mad, he is finished'. Six years later, he is still there."
