Midfielder Jamie O’Hara has completed his potracted move to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The 24-year-old made a total of 56 appearances in a Spurs shirt since making his debut in December 2007.

However, playing time has been hard to come by and has spent time on loan with Portsmouth and Wolves in recent seasons.

It is reported that a fee of £5m has been paid to secure his services as part of the original loan agreement with Wolves.

On the move, O’Hara said “It’s painful to leave because I always wanted to play for Tottenham. I played over 50 games for them and I was part of the club for a long period of time.

“I joined them when I was 17 and I was a Spurs fan so I always wanted to play for the club, but I never really felt like I had the opportunity.

“Juande Ramos played me in a lot of games but then I kind of fell out of favour when Harry Redknapp came in.

“I had a really good pre-season when Redknapp took over but I still got left out and I think from that point on, I realised it was time to move on

“It just wasn’t happening for me. Sometimes your face fits and I just need to play regular football.

“It’s hard to leave them because I’ve always supported them and I still love the club. It’s a fantastic club. But now I’m a Wolves fan and a Wolves player.”

On the move to Wolves, O’Hara added “This is the first time since I was 17 and joined Tottenham that I’ve signed a long-term deal. This is the first time I’m going into a club where I don’t need to catch up or meet new people.

“I’m already part of the club so I really can’t wait to play again. My family are settled here now and we’ve just got to find a house somewhere and it will all be sorted.”

“No2 Bae”, “Done yourself proud!” – Some Tottenham fans fall in love with player after 2-1 win over Brighton

Published

Paulo Gazzaniga

Tottenham Hotspur arrested a slide of three consecutive losses in all competitions after a 2-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday.

Goals from Harry Kane and Erik Lamela sent us on our way to an easy win before Anthony Knockaert pulled one back to make things nervous at the end.

Spurs held on for the crucial three points as we remained six points off the top of the table. But there was one surprise selection as Paulo Gazzaniga started in place of Michel Vorm.

The Dutch keeper has struggled between the sticks but our third-choice keeper did a decent job.

With Hugo Lloris still out with an injury, we might see more of the 26-year-old Argentine between the sticks.

Our next clash is against Watford in the Carabao Cup before we face Huddersfield Town at the weekend, and a few fans wanted Gazzaniga to stay in goal.

Toby Alderweireld and Erik Lamela engage in banter after FIFA 19 game

Toby Alderweireld

Tottenham stars Toby Alderweireld and Erik Lamela were part of the FIFA rating award and it seems the pair had a fair old battle in the upcoming game.

FIFA 19 releases in a week or so but some lucky players have already gotten their hands on EA’s latest release.

A number of other players were also at the show with Kevin de Bruyne at the awards function.

Aldy and Coco looked great at the show and the Argentine even tweeted a picture from the event. The Belgian defender had a cheeky response asking if Lamela enjoyed the game.

It seems the Argentine could not get the better of the defender and claimed that he let Alderweireld win the game.

It is great that there is camaraderie between the players especially after a difficult start to the season. Tottenham have lost three games in a row and are feeling the pressure.

The win against Brighton & Hove Albion should reduce the pressure but Spurs have a tough road ahead.

Lamela and Alderweireld will have huge roles to play for us in the remainder of the season. Hopefully, we will get back on track quickly and make a real case for the Premier League title and more in the coming weeks.

Tottenham deny reports claiming stadium will be ready only by 2019

Published

Tottenham have denied claims that our new stadium would not be ready before 2019, according to Sky Sports.

Construction News reported that the stadium would be complete only by the first week of January. The report quoted an insider claiming that Spurs could play their home games at other grounds for the rest of the season.

Speaking to Sky Sports, however, a Tottenham spokesperson said:

“We have always said that we would issue updates for test events and official opening as soon as we have confidence in our project managers’ and contractors’ ability to deliver against the revised scheduled of works.

“This remains the case and speculating on unsupported dates such as this is irresponsible.”

Tottenham haven’t shared a date as to when our home will be ready. The delay in moving to our new stadium has been due to safety concerns. And we will play a number of our Premier League home fixtures at Wembley too.

The report adds that Wembley would be the venue for our Champions League group home games. The Carabao Cup game against Watford would be played at Stadium MK since Wembley is not available for that date.
