O'Hara has featured just twice for Wolves this season and Jackett has no plans to include him during the next campaign, but despite failing to secure a move away from the League One champions, the former Tottenham Hotspur player is adamant that it's not to hold on to his lucrative deal with the club.
The 27-year-old posted a message on Instagram saying: "In light of the recent comments made in the press, I feel that I have to say something because I've never asked to be paid up.
"I'm not motivated by money, I'm motivated by trying to achieve things in my career. I took a 30% wage cut from the Premier League and sacrificed all my appearance money this season in a bid to be involved.
"I've given 100% every time that I've been on the field even when I wasn't fit, so I'm disappointed to have to defend my attitude and commitment."
O'Hara has spent the majority of the year training with the club's Under-21 side.
