Jamie O’Hara is reportedly in talks with Chicago Fire over a possible move to Major League Soccer and is set to spend a week in the city to weigh up a move across the Atlantic, according to Sky Sports.
The 28-year-old is a free-agent after terminating his contract at Wolverhampton Wanderers in August, and has been training with Premier League side Queens Park Rangers in a bid to stay fit.

He has seven England under-21 appearances to his name and is a solid central midfielder that would undoubtedly strengthen a Chicago Fire side that will be disappointed not to have made the playoffs this season.
O’Hara is set to be given a tour of the club’s facilities when he travels to Chicago as the Fire attempt to lure in the tough-tackling central midfielder.
Grant Ward is currently on loan from Tottenham with the MLS side, so there will be a gap that needs to be filled, and if O’Hara is pleased by what he see’s, he will likely be the latest Englishman to make the switch across the pond.
