A superstar of African football, Kanu overcame major heart surgery to become a key member of the successful Arsenal side following his move from Inter Milan in 1999.

He began at Fed Works and Iwuanyanwu in the domestic league and he starred in the 1993 African and World Youth Championships where his performances earned him a move to Ajax.

His international debut was not long after playing in May 1994 against Sweden.

He had a good career at Ajax culminating in a European Champions League winners medal in 1995.

He helped Nigeria to a gold medal at the 1996 Olympic games and won a big move to Serie A team Inter Milan immediately after.

His career was threatened by a serious heart condition which needed surgery to correct, but he forced his way back representing Nigeria in the 1998 World Cup Finals.

He signed for Arsenal in 1999 and became a vital member of their successful side.

He joined West Bromwich Albion in July 2004 with a three-year contract before moving on to Portsmouth in August 2006 on a one-year deal that was extended to June 2008 in August 2007 and to June 2009 in August 2008.

He then remained at Pompey on a monthly basis before agreeing a new one-year deal in September 2009.

His Pompey contract was extended to June 2013 in September 2010 before it was cancelled in July 2012.
