O'Hara made 14 appearances for the south coast club in the first half of the campaign, scoring his only goal to date in a 3-1 defeat at Blackburn in November.

The 23-year-old briefly returned to White Hart Lane earlier this month when his loan deal expired, but has been persuaded to return to Fratton Park by Pompey boss Avram Grant.

Tottenham said on their official website: "Jamie O'Hara has joined Portsmouth on loan until the end of the season. The 23-year-old spent five months on loan with Portsmouth earlier this season, making 14 appearances and scoring once."

O'Hara joined Spurs' academy in 2003 and has featured 56 times for the north London club, netting seven goals.
