O'Hara handed Blackpool chance

Jamie O'Hara has joined Championship strugglers Blackpool on a two-month deal in a bid to get his career back on track.

The former Tottenham midfielder has been without a club since his contract at Wolves was terminated in August. 

O'Hara's three-year spell at Molineux came to an acrimonious end as he fell out of favour - his last appearance for Wolves was during a League Cup tie at Carlisle United in August 2013. 

But the 28-year-old has been handed a chance to impress by Blackpool, who are bottom of the second tier of English football, and is determined to make the most of it. 

"I'm delighted this opportunity came along, [manager] Lee Clark gave me a call and I jumped at the opportunity," O'Hara told the club's official website. 

"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 could make his Blackpool debut at Leeds United on Saturday.
