Portsmouth have admitted that they would be interested in signing Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jamie O’Hara on a permanent basis.

The England Under-21 international is on loan at Fratton Park until Christmas, but there was talk of a possible Spurs return in January.

O’Hara will be unavailable to face Spurs this weekend as part of the loan agreement.

“There has been nothing from Spurs that Jamie will be going back in January, nothing at all,” Portsmouth chief executive Peter Storrie said in The News.

“As far as we are concerned, we have an option to keep Jamie until the end of the season. That can be taken up in January if he is enjoying himself – and he is.

“He’s happy at this club playing regular first-team football, which is the reason why the lad came here in the first place.

“You can see what a fantastic player he is when he starts matches consistently. Jamie has been excellent for us.

“He has been playing very, very well and obviously we would like to keep him until the end of the season.

“Perhaps there would be a chance of doing something permanent, we will have to wait and see.”

  1. NO No No & NO

    Didn’t want him to go in the 1st place ~ whether it be by Loan or permenant? He’s a Spurs player through & through plays with his heart on his sleeve every game.

    I Can recall when he came on for us in one of his very 1st appearances for Spurs (Albeit a SUB!) can’t remember against who? But I remember we were having one of OUR bad games when we couldn’t string TWO passes together & in a nutshell we we’re just “Shite” And with the likes of Berba; keano; Jenas; Ledders & Woody playing that day/night ~ he came on (As a kid) & gestured to the Team “C’mon play Fcuking Football” from then I was hooked on the lad & to be fair he ain’t let me down, just need more game time?

    I’ll be gutted if he stays at pompey ~ but that’s foot ball eh?
