Mark O'Hara: Attracting interest from a number of English clubs

The defender broke into the Kilmarnock side last season at just 16 and went on to make his first start in Killie's famous 2-0 win over Celtic at Celtic Park last October.

O'Hara made 20 appearances in all competitions last season and his form at Rugby Park caught the attention of a host of clubs south of the border.

Everton are thought to have watched the full-back in action last season, while several Premier League and Championship sides are believed to be keeping tabs on his progress.

The versatile defender, who does not turn 18 until December, is regarded as one of the best young prospects to emerge in Scotland in recent years and is tipped for a big future in the game.

Kilmarnock are reluctant to lose O'Hara, but are braced for offers for the full-back if he continues his rapid development.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
