Peterborough United owner Darragh MacAnthony has confirmed that a ‘top 4’ SPFL side are interested in United midfielder Mark O’Hara.

The Scotsman moved to the Posh last year after a fruitful spell with Dundee. It hasn’t quite worked for him though, with the Weston Homes Stadium side farming him out to Lincoln City on loan for a spell.

Now owner MacAnthony has confirmed Scottish interest in him. Responding to a fan on Twitter, he said: “Lincoln want him but need to raise funds to do deal & SPFL club also now in for him… top 4 club”

O’Hara interest from the SPFL has to come from Aberdeen or Kilmarnock

Celtic and Rangers are unlikely to want the ex-Dee man. That leaves just the Dons and Killie as two possible teams interested in him from the SPFL.

According to the Posh owner’s Twitter, it looks likely to be Aberdeen. Speaking about potential Aberdeen interest on Twitter, he said: “Don’t want to say who as they’ll probably deny it. But defo want him”

This seems to suggest Derek McInnes’ men are the ones interested in him. However, would he perhaps suit Killie more?

O’Hara primarily plays in central midfield, but can do a job on the wing if need be. Killie could be doing with filling both of those positions this summer. They could hit two birds with one stone by signing O’Hara.

His previous Killie connections make this a little more sensible too. He played 87 times for them over a four year period between 2012-2016. A return to Ayrshire could help put him on a platform for another move south.

Whilst it looks likely, if MacAnthony’s comments are anything to go by, that it’s Aberdeen who are interested in him, perhaps Killie should make their move too. They could be doing with a player like O’Hara.
