Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp believes Kanu is a certainty to stay at Fratton Park next season - after revealing the Nigeria striker needs to make only 20 first-team appearances this term to activate a new contract.

Kanu, who could miss a vital chunk of Pompey´s Premier League season in the African Nations Cup in January, has already started five matches this season for Redknapp´s team after coming on as a substitute in the opener at Derby.

Redknapp said: "If Kanu doesn´t play in 20 games he doesn´t deserve another year, but he will play 20 games because he´s good enough. And it is 20 appearances, too, not 20 starts. So he is going to get the games."
