Midfielder On New Deal
Jamie O'Hara says the persistence of manager Lee Clark was the main factor in convincing him to stay at Blackpool.
The midfielder has been a regular fixture in Clark's side since his arrival at Bloomfield Road in November.
The duo will now work together for the remainder of the season, and O'Hara is delighted to continue the relationship.
“The manager has been different class and has been on my case all week trying to get it sorted,” said the midfielder.
“I've always found in football when a manager really wants you and is really positive then that's the guy you need to sign for.
“I still feel there's plenty more to come from myself, and the staff know what I can bring to the team. Hopefully now I've extended my stay I can keep putting in good performances.”
The Seasiders are nine points from safety, but O'Hara still believes survival is possible after some solid performances.
“We're not down yet, we need to keep believing and keep going as a team. The spirit has been good, but a couple of results haven't gone our way.
“It would be massive, a real great escape. We've kept up the pace in not getting further away, but we need to get closer to teams.
“Hopefully a few results will go our way, we'll get closer and the lads and people around the place will keep believing,” he said.
