Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp was delighted with Kanu after the Nigerian striker´s 54th-minute tap-in floored West Brom at Wembley in the semi-final of the FA Cup.

The second-half winner against Kanu´s former side was enough to shoot Portsmouth into their first FA Cup final since 1939 next month.

Kanu, 31, notched only his sixth goal of the season in only his 14th start, but Redknapp confirmed: "He has earned an extra year on his contract by playing in 25 games and on the strength of that I´d certainly give him that."
