On the move? Jamie O'Hara, on loan at Portsmouth last season, has been linked with West Ham United

Tottenham midfielder Jamie O'Hara could be on his way to West Ham in January, according to reports.

The 24-year-old spent last season on loan at Portsmouth under Avram Grant after being frozen out by Spurs boss Harry Redknapp.

When Grant took over at West Ham, the Israeli contacted O'Hara about joining him at Upton Park but the move broke down over Spurs' £6m asking price.

However the Hammers will reportedly make another attempt to sign O'Hara in the January transfer window with the player said to be keen on the move.

He wants to play regular Premier League and   to stay in London because of his family.

West Ham would also be willing to meet the midfielder's £30,000-a-week wages, say reports.

The only snag is the two clubs have not been on the best of the terms recently as West Ham were furious over Spurs' pursuit of their midfielder Scott Parker in the summer.

They are also both battling to take over the use of the Olympic Stadium after London 2012.

But Redknapp could be willing to cut his losses and let O'Hara, who has never figured in his plans, go if he can get a decent return on a player with three years of his contract remaining.

Redknapp said earlier this season: 'They [West Ham] were talking to Jamie O'Hara all through the summer. Jamie told me he'd been getting phone calls all summer.'
