Portsmouth are to submit a request to Tottenham Hotspur to ask permission to play Jamie O’Hara when both sides meet in the FA Cup semi final.
The midfielder is currently on loan at Fratton Park and Avram Grant is hoping that Harry Redknapp will allow him to play at Wembley on April 11th.
“There is a clause in his contract and we need to accept that and respect it,” Grant said on Sky Sports News.
“But if you are not in a top team it is not often that you get to a semi-final at Wembley, especially at Portsmouth, and Jamie wants to play this semi-final very much.
“I can promise Tottenham that he will not score against them.”
He added: “Harry is a good friend of mine. I was here with him when we started the process at Portsmouth.
“We tried to do something different and I think the year that I spent working with him was a great year.”
