Wolves have agreed a deal to sign Jamie O’Hara from Tottenham for £5 million, Goal.com can reveal.


The midfielder agreed personal terms over the weekend and will sign permanently for Wolves on a four-year contract.

Wolves had already activated an option to sign O'Hara for £5m at the end of the season following his consistently impressive performances after arriving on loan in January.

O'Hara, 24, played a key role in keeping Wolves in the Premier League, scoring three goals in 13 appearances including one against Blackburn on the last day of the season.

Both Wolves and O'Hara were desperate to make the deal permanent, with the Tottenham youth product frustrated with the lack of first-team opportunities at White Hart Lane.

“I think Jamie has shown his quality since he has been here,” said Wolves manager Mick McCarthy last month. “We've got a deal to do and I want to keep Jamie.

“He's what I call a real Premier League player and that's what we will be trying to recruit again this summer.”

O'Hara, who spent the 2009-10 season on loan at Portsmouth, will report for pre-season training on July 4.
