O'Hara keen on permanent Wolves switch

Wolverhampton Wanderers' on-loan midfielder Jamie O'Hara has his sights set on a permanent switch to Molineux.

The 24-year-old star is a product of the Tottenham Hotspur youth academy, but has found first team opportunities at White Hart Lane very difficult to come by, and as such has spent a large proportion of his career playing on loan at other clubs.

But following his January switch to Wolves, O'Hara has settled in the Midlands, and is hoping his performances for Mick McCarthy's side have done enough to earn him a permanent deal with the club.

O'Hara scored his third goal of the season in yesterday's final-day defeat to Blackburn Rovers, and with Wolves' top-flight status secure for another year, he is hopeful that a fee of around £5million which has been agreed with Spurs can be rubber-stamped in the next couple of weeks.

"There's a deal on the table and Wolves need to say they want me," he said.

"A fee has been agreed with Tottenham, but the deal has got to be done within a week. That's up to the chairman and the gaffer to see what they want to do.

"I want to stay. Hopefully the gaffer will want me to stay. Hopefully I'll be speaking to him over the next week or so and get something sorted."

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp told reporters after his side’s final day victory, "I think he will probably go there [to Wolves] now.

"I think it's part of the deal. If they stay up there was an agreement that they'd buy him."
