Infamous Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Jamie O’Hara has joined Blackpool on a short-term deal.
Whilst the 27-year-old was in Wolves exile following the arrival of Kenny Jackett as Wolves head coach, O’Hara joined Blackpool on trial.
At the time Paul Ince was supposedly impressed, but fitness was an issue and he returned to Molineux.
Paul Ince, Barry Ferguson and José Riga have all moved on from the Blackpool hotseat, but new boss Lee Clark has taken it upon himself to give O’Hara a chance following his release from Wolves in August.
O’Hara had been unable to find himself a new club whilst contracted at Molineux.
But O’Hara eventually had his two-year-contract with £20,000-plus weekly salary torn up in a bid to get his career back on track.
O’Hara joined Wolves in January 2011 initially on loan before a permanent move was agreed for £5million.
He went on to make 57 appearances for the club, which included just 40 minutes of action since May 2013.
Following his departure from Wolves he spent two-months training with Queens Park Rangers, with QPR manager Harry Redknapp recommending him to Clark.
‘I’m delighted this opportunity came along, Lee Clark gave me a call and I jumped at the opportunity, I’m desperate to get back on the football pitch.
‘I’m really happy to be on board and hopefully I can help the team get some points on the board quickly.’ O’Hara told the Express & Star.
