Tottenham SEAL Doherty signing on four-year deal

Matt Doherty has followed the footsteps of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Joe Hart by joining Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham ahead of the new Premier League season.

Tottenham Hotspur have completed the signing of Wolves right-back Matt Doherty for a reported fee of £14.7million.

Tottenham have finally gotten their man for a lesser fee after Doherty handed in a transfer request on Wednesday. Wolves were holding out for an initial £40m for their prized Irish asset.

Spurs confirmed on Sunday the 28-year-old Irishman has signed a four-year deal and will wear the number two shirt this season.

Ireland international Doherty played 50 games across all competitions for Wolves last season and scored seven goals.

Tottenham have been eager to sign a new top quality right-back after selling Kyle Walker-Peters to Southampton and confirming Serge Aurier is likely to depart.

Doherty had been a Wolves’ footballer for 10 years, helping the club gain promotion from the League One into the Championships, and finally, into the Premier League.

His arrival adds to Tottenham’s signings of midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and goalkeeper Joe Hart in this transfer window.
