Wolves’ new £5 million pound man Jaime O’Hara has turned his back on an international career with the Republic of Ireland and has instead decided to throw in his lot with the England team.
The former Spurs midfielder had been coveted by Giovanni Trapattoni and his team and had been mulling over the decision.
That decision has now been made with the 24 year old, who represented England at Under-21 level telling Wolves official website of his desire to play for Fabio Capello’s England.
Speaking to the clubs website O’Hara said “I have decided I want to play for England. It’s always been my ambition as a young player. I played in all the age groups through the years and now I’m looking to get off to a flying start.
“I’m looking to be a key figure for Wolves this season, and getting into the England squad is something I really want to do. I had a good end to last season and, coming into the new season, I want to have a cracking start and get into the England reckoning.
“I think it has been proved with this England manager that if you play regularly in the Premier League and do well, you have got a chance of getting in the squad.”
