The Midlands club formally announced the capture of O'Hara following their FA Cup defeat at the hands of Stoke City.

The 24-year-old had a spell on loan at Portsmouth last season but has not featured at first-team level at White Hart Lane this season because of a back injury.

The former England Under-21 international featured in two recent full-scale practice matches with Spurs and was eager to go out on loan again in order to regain full match sharpness.

West Ham were also interested in signing O'Hara but were beaten in the battle to secure to his services.
