Portsmouth’s on-loan midfielder Jamie O’Hara has already been linked many times to signing for Newcastle United in the summer.
Jamie O’Hara – headed to Newcastle this summer?
We really like the look of Jamie, and from comments we’ve seen, most of our readers seem to rate the 23 year-old central midfielder too.
Of course Chris knows all about Jamie, as O’Hara came through the Tottenham youth system, while Chris was coach at the London club for 13 years.
But O’Hara has had more than a good season at Portsmouth and is being pursued by a number of Premier League clubs.
With Chris knowing the player Newcastle must be ina with a decent chance, we would think.
This is what Chris Hughton said about the player today::
“I know Jamie O’Hara well, but I can only think the link is because of my time at Spurs.”
“He has had a very good season. He wants to play and he needs to play, and that is why he went to Portsmouth and has done well. But there has not been anything from us on him.”
Well those words hardly tell us anything.
We suppose we could try to get Jamie on loan for next season, but Spurs may not agree to that, and if we go after the player, we’ll no longer be paying the highest wages he will be offered, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens.
Jamie has appeared 25 times for Portsmouth this season with 2 goals, and he’s played 51 times for Spurs with 3 goals.
But we’d love for this player to be signed by Newcastle.
What do you think?
