    Jamie O'Hara has completed his move from Tottenham to Wolves and will become a Wolves player on 1 July, The Sun reports.

    O'Hara had a successful loan stint at Molineux last season, scoring three goals in 13 games.

    The two clubs already had an agreement in place for a £5 million deal. Manager Mick McCarthy has confirmed he wants the move to go ahead and the player is also keen on the switch.

    The contract is almost agreed and O'Hara is expected to sign it shortly. It is expected to be a four or five-year deal.

    O'Hara was an influential figure playing behind the striker in McCarthy's 4-5-1 formation in the latter half of last season.

    Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey said: "We are delighted to make Jamie our first confirmed signing of the summer.

    "He made a very positive impact both on and off the pitch and played a key role in helping us achieve our aim of Premier League survival.

    "What is more, he settled very well at the club and his attitude and ability epitomises what the manager looks for in each and every member of his squad.

    "Our desire to sign Jamie was evident in the option agreed with Tottenham to potentially make the loan deal permanent at the end of the season.

    "I can confirm we exercised the option as soon as the campaign had finished but as ever at this time of year, holidays for various parties meant we couldn't announce anything until now.

    "Given how keen Jamie was to join us, we always knew it was just a matter of completing the formalities.

    "With those formalities complete, Jamie has agreed a five year contract and will become a permanent signing on July 1 at the end of his loan spell.

    "We are all looking forward to Jamie getting a full pre-season completed, something he missed last year, and playing an integral part from the beginning of next season during which we hope, and expect, him to be even more effective player for Wolves in the Premier League."
