Wolves clinch O'Hara signing

Jamie O'Hara

Wolves have completed the permanent signing of midfielder Jamie O'Hara from Tottenham in a £5million deal.

O'Hara has signed a five-year contract after enjoying a successful loan spell at Molineux during the second half of last season.

The 24-year-old scored three goals in 13 games including one against Blackburn on the final day of the season which helped keep Wolves in the Barclays Premier League.

An agreement was already in place for O'Hara to make the £5million move to Wolves should the player and manager Mick McCarthy want that to happen.

O'Hara was often used effectively just behind the main striker in a 4-5-1 formation as Wolves guaranteed Premier League football for a third successive season.

McCarthy said: "Jamie made a big impact when he first came here. There was a dip in form at one juncture but he came strong again at the end."

Wolves are also interested in £3million-rated Reading defender Matt Mills and Liverpool left-back Paul Konchesky who spent the second half of last season on loan to Nottingham Forest.

McCarthy is also looking for a new keeper as back-up for Wayne Hennessey after Marcus Hahnemann was released at the end of last season.
