Jamie O'Hara: Training with the Tangerines

Seasiders boss Ince, a former Wolves player, has until Thursday to acquire the ex-Tottenham and Portsmouth midfielder O'Hara on a temporary deal before the window closes.

O'Hara, 27, has been frozen out at Molineux after being made one of the scapegoats following the successive relegations which saw them drop in to Sky Bet League One this campaign.

Boss Kenny Jackett, who confirmed O'Hara was training with Blackpool at his press conference on Monday, has been keen to start with a clean slate ever since arriving in the summer.

But while the likes of Roger Johnson and Stephen Ward have been sent out to Championship clubs on loan deals, O'Hara has been left kicking in his heels with the club's Under-21s.

He has impressed the Wolves managerial team with his attitude while there, though, and Jackett has introduced him off the bench twice this month.

Blackpool have been fighting a spate of injuries recently and would welcome the experience O'Hara would bring given Barry Ferguson is a long-term absentee due to an ankle injury.

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.

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
