Jamie O’Hara is enjoying the opportunity of regular first-team football at Portsmouth.

The Tottenham midfielder moved to Fratton Park on loan during the sumer transfer window and is enjoying his time on the south coast.

He said: ‘I was in the comfort zone at Tottenham. I could have stayed and played matches here and there. But I am not the type of person happy to do that. I want to play every week.

‘I hate sitting on the bench and I hate watching players while I’m sitting there thinking, “I want to be out there”.

‘So that’s why it was a good opportunity to go and play football every week with Portsmouth. And yes, this experience, the whole situation, can only work in my favour.

‘It’s a sticky situation where we are bottom of the league. We are having to fight for every result, and that can only make me better as a player.’

Should Spurs sell O’Hara to recall him in January?
