O’Hara eyes Wolves contract

O’Hara has enjoyed a successful loan spell at Molineux during the
second half of the campaign and scored in Sunday’s 3-2 home defeat
by Blackburn. He is keen to stay and revealed a fee has been agreed
between the clubs but is now waiting to here from Wolves boss Mick
McCarthy that he has a long term future at Wolves. O’Hara said: “I
think they’ve got a week to decide what they want to do. “I want to
stay. Hopefully the gaffer will want me to stay. I haven’t spoken
to him about it to be honest. “We will see what happens. Hopefully
I’ll be speaking to him over the next week or so and get something
sorted. “There is a deal on the table and they need to say that
they want me. “We will see what happens. “There is an agreed fee
with Tottenham, which has got to be done within a week, but that is
up to the chairman (Steve Morgan) and the gaffer (McCarthy) to see
what they want to do. “I want to get myself sorted. I’m happy here
and enjoying my football.” O’Hara added: “I’m not going back to
London. I’m staying here until I know what is going on. “I’ve moved
out of my house. I’m up here. I’m not planning on going back to
London. “My whole family is settled up here and I’ve got some great
friends here so we’ll see what happens.” O’Hara was relegated last
season when on loan to Portsmouth but claimed: “This is completely
different. This club is a proper football club. “It is run
fantastically, the chairman is brilliant, the gaffer is absolutely
amazing. “He gets everyone involved in everything. It’s a proper
football club and it’s been a real honour to play for this club.”
Midfielder Stephen Hunt scored the second goal against Blackburn
which kept Wolves up before Birmingham’s last-gasp defeat at
Tottenham meant they eventually finished a point clear of trouble.
Irishman Hunt was desperate to make an impact after an injury hit
campaign and admitted he took inspiration from Leinster’s comeback
against Northampton to win rugby union’s Heineken Cup. Hunt said:
“I said three weeks ago that I needed to have a short-term impact
for the lads that have worked their socks off all season and to try
and help them after what they’ve been through. “Luckily I’ve done
that in the last three games. “Mick’s half-time team talk got us
going again after we were 3-0 down but you also saw what Leinster
did in the Heineken Cup on Saturday. “We didn’t win like they did
but I saw Johnny Sexton (scored 28 points). I looked to him and
what he did and that inspired me a little bit.” Hunt went down with
Reading and Hull and admitted: “I’m still hurting from the
relegations. Of course it still hurts. “But we move on now at
Wolves, we learn from it, we’ll try and get better as a team and
get better as a club.”
