O'Hara joins Wolves and predicts bright future

Jamie O'Hara has left Tottenham for Wolves in a £5m move but feels he is joining a club who will soon establish themselves as a Premier League force. The most expensive midfielder in the club's history said: "It's going to be sad leaving Tottenham. I had a great career there and the fans were always different class with me.

"I'll always support Spurs but it's one of those things. I had to move on.

"The chairman and the manager at Wolves put a lot of faith in me after I had been out for a long time with a back problem.

"I was put straight into the side and to make a permanent move now after a scary end to the season (narrowly avoiding relegation) is brilliant.

"I didn't even ask for a five-year deal. They offered me it. It is fantastic. It shows they wanted me and wanted me to be here for the long haul."

O'Hara's goal on the final day of the campaign against Blackburn helped Wolves to ensure a third season of top flight football.

He said: "I don't think we'll have an end to next season like this season.

"It's going to be our third season in the Premier League and hopefully we can push on and be a force to be reckoned with.

"It is definitely a club that is on the way up."

O'Hara added: "I want to achieve things at the club. I wouldn't have signed here if I didn't think this club was going to be pushing forward.

"I think it is a club on the up. It is going to be down to the club and the team to make things happen.

"But I think, with the squad and manager we've got, this coming season we've got to be looking at mid-table and then pushing on from there."
