Jamie O'Hara on Friday night signed a new contract at Tottenham which commits his future to the club until 2013 - but then promptly joined Portsmouth on loan.

O'Hara has been at White Hart Lane since 2005, when he joined as a trainee, and has spent short loan spells at Chesterfield and Millwall. The 22-year-old has played three times for Spurs so far this season, twice as a late substitute before starting and scoring in their 5-1 Carling Cup win over Doncaster in midweek.

"It was frustrating to be sat on the bench at Tottenham," O'Hara told Portsmouth's official website,, after joining Pompey on loan until January, with an option to extend it until the end of the season.

"I hope I can come here and get some games under my belt.

"It's a chance to play for a side who have done really well over the last few years, so I jumped at the opportunity.

"I'm always going to give 100% and hope I'll fit in straightaway and get to know the lads quite quickly."
