Wolves midfielder Jamie O'Hara has rejected an approach from the Republic of Ireland.

Wolves midfielder Jamie O'Hara has rejected an approach from the Republic of Ireland.

He has not given up hope of playing for England and is sticking to his guns – even though boss Mick McCarthy has told him to make himself available for the Republic.

O’Hara, 25, insisted: “I’ve played for England at every level except the senior side.

“It’s always been my ambition to win a full cap and that hasn’t changed. I have a massive Irish family on dad’s side – I’m probably more Irish than English.

“But it would be unfair on the Irish players if I changed countries and it would raise a few eyebrows. I wouldn’t want that sort of attention.”
