Duo on their way to Fratton Park.
Portsmouth have agreed a fee with Tottenham for Kevin-Prince Boateng and enquired about taking Jamie O’Hara on loan.
Pompey boss Paul Hart is scouring the transfer market as he bids to bolster his squad and he is hoping to lure midfield duo O’Hara and Boateng to Fratton Park.
Boateng, who joined Tottenham in 2007, is well down the pecking order at White Hart Lane and spent last season on loan at Borussia Dortmund.
The 22-year-old is believed to be surplus to requirements and Harry Redknapp is willing to let him move on.
Portsmouth are believed to have agreed a fee in the region of £4million for the Germany Under 21 international with the player currently holding talks and undergoing a medical at Fratton Park.
O’Hara is down the pecking order for a place in the Spurs midfield and he could be interested in a loan switch in search of regular first-team football.
“Jamie’s a terrific player but needs to play games and I’ll let him go to
Portsmouth on loan. He’ll do a great job for them,” said Redknapp. (Sky Sports)
There are players who flatter to deceive and then those who are simply just not in the same league as you have been led to believe. Kevin Prince Boateng was hailed by the German media and by many English pundits as one of the hottest prospects in Europe, fact was that he was very average to say the least. Harry gave the 22 year old a couple of run outs when he arrived and then loaned him back to the Bundesliga and more recently he got a half hour run out at Doncaster. Perhaps at Portsmouth the midfielder will click and Spurs should feel grateful to get the majority of the £5.4m Martin Jol invested in the Hertha Berlin side.
It has been reported that a loan deal for Jamie O’Hara has also been completed and Harry seems pleased that the youngster will be getting a regular run out at Fratton Park. The local born midfielder clearly loves the north London club but will greatly benefit from regular Premier League action.
