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.”
