LONDON - Portsmouth striker Kanu has called for the club to allow him to leave Fratton Park to join Ajax.
The 30-year-old is the club's top scorer with nine goals but is 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."
And boss Harry Redknapp has admitted he would not stand in the way if defender Sol Campbell wanted to join Chelsea.
Chelsea are facing a defensive crisis with John Terry out with a back injury.
And Redknapp said he would be powerless to prevent the former Spurs and Arsenal centre-back Campbell, 32, from leaving if he wanted to leave for Stamford Bridge.
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."
Kanu's future is of a more pressing concern, with the former Arsenal and West Brom forward keen to recreate the glory days of the mid-1990s at Ajax.
And he also hinted that Tottenham midfielder Edgar Davids could join him in Amsterdam.
He said: "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." - BBC
