Tottenham and Wolves agree transfer fee for £15m-rated Irish right-back Matt Doherty


- Advertisment -

TOTTENHAM have agreed a fee “in the region” of £15million for Wolves right-back Matt Doherty, reports claim.

The Irishman emerged as a key target for Spurs this week.

Doherty netted seven goals for Wolves last season

Jose Mourinho is looking for a new right-back this summer, with Doherty fitting the bill.

Spurs sold Kyle Walker-Peters to Southampton after the youngster enjoyed a successful loan spell at St Mary’s.

And Serge Aurier appears likely to follow him out of North London, with AC Milan and Beyer Leverkusen in talks for the erratic Ivorian.

Midfielder Gedson Fernandes has been tried at right-back in pre-season games against Ipswich and Reading.

But according to Sky Sports, Spurs will soon bolster their ranks with the signing of Doherty, 28.

The 6ft ace joined the East Midlands club from Irish side Bohemians for just £75,000 back in 2010.

And he went on to star at Molineux, making 302 appearances in total.

Of these, 50 came last season, as Nuno Espirito Santo’s men competed in the Europa League.

Doherty could become Spurs’ third signing of the summer after Hojbjerg (pictured) and Joe Hart

Playing primarily as a wing-back, Doherty managed seven goals and five assists – and should provide Spurs with an experienced option if they choose to play three-at-the-back.

Doherty is set to become Spurs’third acquisition of the summer – having already recruited Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Joe Hart.

Both new signings have been seen in action for their new side, as they swept aside Ipswich and Reading at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
