Lincoln City have an option to buy on loan midfielder Mark O’Hara in the summer, as revealed by Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony via Peterborough Today.
O’Hara only moved to London Road in the summer, but after a blistering start he fell out of favour with manager Steve Evans. The towering midfielder swapped League One for League Two in January, joining the ambitious Imps on loan.
He’s forced his way into the first team picture at Sincil Bank, recently bagging the only goal as they beat Yeovil 1-0 to open up a gap at the top of the table.
The Imps won’t have it all their own way though, as MacAnthony also revealed that there are other clubs involved.
23-year-old O’Hara started out with Kilmarnock before switching to Dundee, enjoying four seasons in the Scottish Premier League before moving south of the border.
He’s now made nine appearances for Lincoln, six coming as starts, with the solitary goal to his name.
O’Hara would be a huge signing for the Imps, he’s got a real presence in the middle of the park and adds aerial threat in both boxes.
The issue is whether the Imps can afford to get into an auction. They’re already reported to owe Posh a ‘six figure’ sum as clauses in deals between the two which reward promotion to League One.
