Redknapp told PremPlus: “No, Kanu is not leaving. The last I heard he was looking for a new contract and that is something we will sit down and look at.
“I have had no offers for Kanu and I did not see anyone queuing up for him when I took him in the summer.
“It is a great game, people are wise after the event.
“I bring him here, he has done fantastically well and now people want him, but why didn’t they wake up in the summer?”
