Jamie O’Hara was furious at the news that Tottenham’s move for Pedro Porro was OFF.
talkSPORT understands Spurs are looking for alternative targets after negotiations with Sporting for the defender hit a standstill.
The stumbling blocks came over the instalment-plan the north London club had proposed for the £40million transfer, which is his release clause.
Porro had been expected to have a medical in north London on Monday with him having waved goodbye to the Portuguese club’s fans over the weekend.
Joining talkSPORT Breakfast on Monday morning, former Tottenham star O’Hara said: “I’ve got to be honest, I’m a little bit annoyed at Tottenham. It’s coming up to the end of the January transfer window and we’ve brought in Danjuma.
“The Pedro Porro deal is on its knees and talk of it not happening.
“We’ve got a good side and will finish fifth, might sneak fourth, but we’ve got to buy new players. We’re not good enough at the back and have to back Antonio Conte. If we want to keep him at the football club then you’ve got to back him.
“Pedro Porro is a fantastic player and way better than what we’ve got. I’m sick of Spurs trying to sign players that just improve the squad.

“If you look at Man United, look at Arsenal, they’ve brought players in who improve them on the pitch.
“Spurs just get players in to improve the bench.
“Pedro Porro is a big signing for us. Sign him then we’re going in the right direction, centre-half, another left wing-back, creative midfielder and a new ‘keeper, then we’re flying.”
When told the deal was off, he added: “If that’s the case, then Daniel Levy needs to get out of Tottenham. If we don’t get this signing over the line then the fans will go mental.
“It will not be good for him. Spurs fans wanted this player and has taken ages to get done.
“If it doesn’t get done and we’re stuck with Emerson Royal until the end of the season, I might as well not bother going to watch them.”
