Harry Redknapp has dismissed suggestions of striker Kanu moving to Australia as a "lot of cobblers", but would not stand in the player´s way if he wants to walk away from Fratton Park at the end of the season.

Kanu´s agent, Samuel Okoronkwo, claims new Australian club Gold Coast Galaxy have expressed an interest in making the former Ajax, Inter Milan and Arsenal ace their big attraction when they enter the Australian A league later this year.

But Redknapp said: "If he wants to go I wouldn´t stand in Kanu´s way. You don´t want unhappy players and I´ve never tried to keep them here. But I think talk of Australia is just a lot of cobblers. I think he wants to stay here. The lad seems to be happy and I don´t want him to go anywhere. He has been terrific for me."
