Tottenham sign Matt Doherty from Wolves.
Matt Doherty has signed a four-year deal that will keep him at Spurs until 2024.
Matt Doherty is a right-back and has arrived from Wolves. He has been at Wolves since 2010, and he is 28 years old.
The club have revealed that Doherty has signed a contract that will keep him at the club until 2024. He has become our third senior player, after Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (who joined from Southampton) and goalkeeper Joe Hart, who signed on a free transfer. We also purchased 16-year-old Alfie Devine from Wigan, who has already played in some of our friendlies.
The club paid £12m for Doherty, which could rise to £16m after add-ons.
Matt Doherty has risen through the divisions with Wolves during his 10 season spell at the club. He has played in League One, the Championship, and the Premier League with them. He has recorded 302 appearances and 28 goals in this career
It is rumoured that Serge Aurier may also be on his way out of the club.
Matthew James Doherty was born on the 16 January 1992 and is from Dublin, Ireland. He plays as a right-back for club and the Republic of Ireland national team.
Doherty was signed by Wolves in 2010. He achieved senior football experience with loan spells at Hibernian and Bury, respectively, before starting playing for Wolves’ first team. After representing the Republic of Ireland U21s, he then, shortly afterwards, received his first call-up to the senior Republic of Ireland squad in 2016.
We wish him well, and I/ we look forward to seeing him in action. I presume his first game for the club could be in our friendly at Watford this coming Saturday.
