Portsmouth striker Nwankwo Kanu has again asked for the club to allow him to leave Fratton Park to join Ajax.
The 30-year-old has been in impresssive form this season, scoring nine goals for Pompey, but the Nigerian forward keen to make a return to the Dutch club.
He told the Vanguard newspaper: “I want to go to Ajax.
“Portsmouth should be grateful for what I have been able to do for them and allow me to go.
“I have been talking to Edgar Davids and a couple of the other guys who shaped Ajax in the mid-1990s and we believe we can re-create the atmosphere if we return to play for the club.
“I am waiting for Ajax’s offer. I have told Portsmouth I want to leave. My mind is made up. I have great memories of Amsterdam and I know great things can happen there if we return.” ?
And Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp has admitted he may have a struggle on his hands retaining defender Sol Campbell if the former England stopper is wanted to join Chelsea.
Chelsea are facing a defensive crisis with John Terry out for an unspecified period of time with a back injury.
He said: “You wouldn’t want to lose him but if he said he wanted to go what could you do? Not a lot really.
“I hope Chelsea are not interested in him. If I lose him I am in trouble.”
