Youngster considering his options.
Jamie O’Hara is not ruling out securing a permanent switch to Portsmouth after joining on loan from Spurs.
The Spurs midfielder will spend the first half of the season at Fratton Park in a bid to gain more regular action.
O’Hara, who should make his debut against Bolton this weekend, is just happy to be playing first-team football again.
The 22-year-old is tied to Spurs until 2013, but has failed to rule out staying at Pompey permanently should the opportunity arise.
“Obviously that’s what Tottenham want me to do. They want me to play football,” he told Sky Sports News.
“On a personal view I just want to play. Whether it’s at Portsmouth or Tottenham I just want to play football.
“If I’m going to be playing my football here then that’s where I’m going to be playing my football.”
Pompey have made a dreadful start to the new campaign and O’Hara, who is one of 13 new faces at the club, believes they will turn the corner sooner rather than later. (Sky Sports)
I guess it stands to reason that a player of O’Hara’s age, 22, is looking for a bit more in the way of regular football and given the success Harry’s having with his current crop of midfielders Jamie may well have to consider a move to Fratton Park.
It would be a shame for the youngster to leave Tottenham though as he is clearly a player who truly loves the club and whilst this shouldn’t be enough of a reason to keep a player its still good to see.
He always plays with the big grin of a player who realises just how lucky he is to be a professional footballer and that’s always a good thing to see.
