Newcastle United manager Chris Hughton has played down rumours linking him with a summer move for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jamie O'Hara.
O'Hara has impressed while on loan with Portsmouth this season and is well known to Hughton from his time at White Hart Lane, but the Magpies boss insists that no approach has been made for the player.
He told The Journal: "I know Jamie O'Hara well, but I can only think the link is because of my time at Spurs.
"He has had a very good season. He wants to play and he needs to play and that is why he went to Portsmouth and has done well.
"But there has not been anything from us on him."
