    Now the Premier League have removed their transfer embargo Tottenham midfielder Jamie O'Hara tops Portsmouth's list of targets.

    Former Chelsea boss Avram Grant, who took the top job following Paul Hart's sacking two months ago, is sure to have his own targets but the first order of business is a new loan deal for O'Hara.

    The 23-year-old spent the first half of the season at Fratton Park but despite an agreement being in place between Spurs and Portsmouth to extend the deal until the end of the campaign, he was forced to return to London due to the embargo.

    Pompey chief executive Peter Storrie told BBC Radio 5Live: "(The announcement) is major news, it means we can do something between now and the end of the window.

    "It's a boost for Avram, a boost for the team and the supporters.

    "We're looking to bring in two or three players, ideally four if we can and that would include bringing Jamie O'Hara back, which is our first priority now.

    "If we can bring in three or four we believe we have a chance of staying up."
