Championship strugglers Blackpool have signed ex-Wolves midfielder Jamie O'Hara on a deal until 4 January.

The 28-year-old has been without a club since he had his contract cancelled by mutual consent at Molineux in August.

O'Hara trained with the Seasiders in November 2013 before a potential loan move, which never materialised.

"(Manager) Lee Clark gave me a call and I jumped at the opportunity," said O'Hara, who has not played at first-team level for a year.

O'Hara's year in the wilderness
Blackpool confirmed the signing of Jamie O'Hara a year to the day after his final senior appearance for Wolves, as a substitute in a 2-2 draw at Carlisle in League One.

"I'm desperate to get back on the football pitch," he told the club website.external-link

O'Hara will not feature for bottom-of-the-table Blackpool against Fulham on Wednesday but could face Leeds on Saturday.

The former England Under-21 international began his career at Tottenham and after a successful loan spell at Wolves, joined them for £5m in 2011.

After successive relegations from the Premier League to League One, Wolves placed O'Hara - who was one of the club's highest wage earners - on the transfer list in June 2013.

He did return to the first team for a short period last season, making two substitute appearances.

O'Hara is Clark's third signing as Blackpool manager, following the arrivals of Jacob Murphy and Jonathan Legear.
