Nottingham Forest and Fulham chasing Jamie O'Hara

HITC Sport understands Nottingham Forest and Fulham are lining up moves for Blackpool midfielder Jamie O'Hara.

HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club that Blackpool midfielder Jamie O'Hara is a target for Nottingham Forest and Fulham.

Blackpool face a major battle to keep hold of former Tottenham midfielder O'Hara following their relegation from the Championship.

O'Hara joined Blackpool last November after ending an unhappy spell at Wolves and he caught the eye at Bloomfield Road.

The 28-year-old was Blackpool's stand-out performer in a disappointing season for the side and he was named the club's Player of the Season by supporters.

O'Hara has been offered a new deal by Blackpool, but a number of clubs are waiting in the wings to land the former England Under-21 man on a free transfer.

Nottingham Forest are keen to bring O'Hara to the City Ground as he fits into their remit as they can only sign free agents due to their transfer embargo.

Fulham boss Kit Symons is thought to be an admirer of O'Hara and he believes the experienced midfielder could prove vital to his plans next season as he looks to mount a serious bid for promotion to the Premier League.
