Jamie O’Hara has expressed his delight at returning to Portsmouth on loan.

The Tottenham Hotspur midfielder will spend the rest of the campaign at Fratton Park after Pompey’s transfer embargo was lifted.

He told Pompey’s official site: “I’m delighted to be back. I really enjoyed playing here in front of Pompey’s fantastic fans.

“As soon as the transfer embargo was lifted I was hopeful that I could come straight back.

“Harry Redknapp wanted me to stay at Tottenham but I’d rather be playing every week in a relegation scrap than sitting on the bench.”

He added: “I still think we can do it otherwise I wouldn’t have come back.

“It might take me a couple of games to get back to full match fitness because I haven’t been playing at Spurs.

“But I’ve only missed two Premier League games for Pompey and I’m hoping to carry on where I left off.”
