Kanu settles with Hotspurs…Refuses to go down with West Brom


Super Eagles striker, Nwankwo Kanu, is on his way to FA Cup finalists, Tottenham Hotspurs. The Nigerian player has refused to go down with West Brom Albion.

Super Eagles striker, Nwankwo Kanu, is on his way to FA Cup finalists, Tottenham Hotspurs. The Nigerian player has refused to go down with West Brom Albion.

Kanu has been linked with a move to Hotspurs, apparently interested in moving to White Hart Lane on a free transfer.
Kanu has a clause in his contract allowing him to leave the club on a free transfer, if he takes the option to do so. Albion would welcome having the strikers’ wages off the wage bill as he is rumoured to be on over £24,000 a week.

Kanu had said that he would stay if the club and he could come to some kind of arrangement, but Albion may have no choice but to off-load the striker with his wage demands being so high for the Coca-Cola Championship.

Also, Nathan Ellington has also been linked with a move away from The Hawthorns with his former club, Wigan apparently showing an interest in taking the striker back to the JJB Stadium.
His former manager, Paul Jewell said, "It is no secret that I am a big fan of his, so far it has not gone that well for him at West Brom.

"But I have not been in contact with his agent or the club."
Bryan Robson came out and backed his striker to make an impact next season, Robson said, "I signed him because I think he will score a lot of goals for us.

"He can be a massive plus for us in The Championship."
Ellington better not let the door hit him on the way out if this move does happen; the Albion fans have been less than happy with what they have seen of him so far. In the club's fight for survival, the striker decided that he didn't want to go through the pain barrier for the cause. Not much commitment when he has played and no way was he worth the £3 million we paid for him.
