Portsmouth striker Kanu could be off Down Under in the summer, according to his agent.

Samuel Okoronkwo, the Nigerian's legal representative, claims Australian club Gold Coast Galaxy are keen to make Kanu their star player.

The newly-formed team, who are believed to have close ties to David Beckham's club Los Angeles Galaxy, are waiting to be given a licence to join the Australian A-League.

Okoronkwo said: "Kanu wants to play football and we would discuss Australia if things were not to work out with Portsmouth."

The 31-year-old stalled for time over the offer of a new one-year contract at Fratton Park in the summer before finally settling for a deal that triggered an automatic one-year extension after 20 appearances this season.
