Harry expects O'Hara departure

BY foxsports • May 23, 2011

O'Hara joined Wolves on loan in January and has played an influential role in helping Mick McCarthy's side retain their top-flight status. He has scored three goals, including one in Sunday's 3-2 home defeat by Blackburn, and now looks primed to stay at Molineux. The 24-year-old had struggled for opportunities back at Spurs and Redknapp does not expect O'Hara to return to White Hart Lane. "I think he will probably go there (to Wolves) now," said Redknapp. "I think it's part of the deal. If they stay up there was an agreement that they'd buy him." Redknapp is looking to trim his squad over the summer, but has not ruled out keeping Robbie Keane following a disappointing loan spell at West Ham. The Spurs boss added: "I haven't written Robbie off at all. He is a top-class professional who has played over 100 times for his country. "He captains the Republic of Ireland team. He is a top-class professional. He has to come back here and fight to play in the team now." Spurs ended the season with a 2-1 victory over Birmingham City and Redknapp admits Roman Pavlyuchenko's brace could save him money in the transfer market. "He has dynamite in his boots," Redknapp said of the Russian. "When he is on form he is fantastic. I have been to France to watch players three times this week and I'm looking at them and thinking they're not as good as Pav is."
