Portsmouth boss Steve Cotterill has bolstered his threadbare squad by finally tying up deals for Kanu and Ricardo Rocha.
Veteran striker Kanu has been in talks over a new contract since the summer and has only now put pen to paper on fresh terms.
He has been joined by Portuguese defender Rocha, who has signed a two-year deal after initially joining the club back in February.
"Ricardo's a very good character," said Cotterill, whose bottom-placed side take on third placed Ipswich this weekend.
"He's a bit short of fitness but he's had a few tough days training with us now that he can only benefit from.
"Having Kanu is a big boost for everyone. Everybody knows about him so I don't have to describe him too much."
Both players are set to be in the Pompey squad for Saturday's home clash against the Tractor Boys.
