Jamie O’Hara admits that he will hold talks with Harry Redknapp this summer to discuss his future at Spurs.
The midfielder has enjoyed a season-long loan at Portsmouth and after tasting regular-first team football at Pompey, he claims he won’t settle on being a fringe player.
“Once I go back to Spurs, I will be sitting down with the manager and seeing what he wants to do with me next year, whether he wants to offload me to somewhere else or if he wants to keep me,” said O’Hara.
“I have tasted first team football now and have played a lot of games. I would not want to go back to sitting on the bench and playing one match in six.
“There are already five or six great central midfield players at Spurs, and the manager may bring some more in during the summer.
“Spurs have done fantastic this year, so it is going to be difficult for me to get in the team. I will just have to sit down with the manager and see what he wants to do.”
He added: “Being at Portsmouth has matured me as a player, being consistent every game is something I have learned more this year.
“You can’t just come in and have one game in six if you want to play in the Premier League week in and week out, you have to put in performances in every game if you want to play at the top level.
“I have come to Portsmouth and had a great season personally, so hopefully now this can be a stepping stone to go on to better things.”
