Time to move on?
Tottenham midfielder Jamie O’Hara is a target for Birmingham City.

In many ways Jamie O’Hara is something of a luxury and a player who Harry Redknapp could afford to offload without too much concern but should the Spurs boss hold on to the 22 year old?
O’Hara started last nights Carling Cup match at Doncaster and has been used as a late sub in Premier League encounters this term so is a firm part of the club’s regular squad but is unlikely to get a run in the first team and could himself feel that a move to Birmingham, or indeed Fulham (a team who has shown sustained interest in the past) could help resurrect a career that could stagnate at White Hart Lane.
The adaptable midfielder can be a useful utility player to have at your disposal but is finding it hard going to convince Harry of his worth and in all likelihood will only find himself starting cup matches. His first few starts for the club under Juande Ramos showed a player with great potential and he wasn’t overawed by the occasion even when he was thrown in at the deep end when his first Premier League start came against Arsenal, a game where he performed manfully.
