Jamie O’Hara recently left Wolverhampton Wanderers after having his contract terminated by mutual consent.
The 27-year-old who has been in exile since the arrival of Kenny Jackett as Wolves head coach, had been unable to find himself a new club whilst contracted at Molineux.
But O’Hara has now had his two-year-contract with £20,000-plus weekly salary torn up and is now hoping to get his career back on track.
‘I just want to go on record to say that as I leave Wolves, I do so with some sadness but also with huge optimism for the future.’ O’Hara told the Sky Sports.
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.
He continued: ‘I came to the club with big dreams and a huge desire to do well and for varying reasons, some of which fall firmly and squarely on my shoulders, it didn’t work out as I had planned.
‘Being frozen out of the squad put a lot of strain on me so even with two years left on my contract, I decided to walk away in order to start afresh and rebuild my career. It is a risk worth taking because all I’ve ever wanted to do was to be a successful footballer.
‘I’ve had a tough 18 months but I know what I’m capable of as a player and feel that I have loads to offer. I’m still only 27 and my belief in my ability has never wavered.’
