O’Hara has England ambitions

The 24-year-old midfielder has represented England all the way up

to Under-21 level, but found himself at the centre of speculation

that he could opt to try his luck with Ireland, for whom he also

qualifies, after failing to make it into Fabio Capello’s plans.

However, having seen team-mate Matt Jarvis win an England cap

against Ghana last season, O’Hara is now hoping to prove himself

worthy of a chance. O’Hara, who completed a £5million move to

Molineux last month, told the club’s official website: “I have

decided I want to play for England. “It’s always been my ambition

as a young player. I played in all the age groups through the years

and now I’m looking to get off to a flying start. “I’m looking to

be a key figure for Wolves this season, and getting into the

England squad is something I really want to do. “I had a good end

to last season and, coming into the new season, I want to have a

cracking start and get into the England reckoning. “I think it has

been proved with this England manager that if you play regularly in

the Premier League and do well, you have got a chance of getting in

the squad.”
