Defender to return to Premier League club after tough spell at Tottenham

Matt Doherty

Wolves are ready to sign defender Matt Doherty on a free transfer following his three-year stint at Tottenham.

The right-back joined Tottenham from Wolves in 2020 and went on to make 71 appearances for Spurs, 16 of which came last season, although his stay at the club was not without incident.

The Irishman was capable of producing excellent performances but was never fully trusted by Antonio Conte, who rotated him in and out of the lineup.

Doherty’s stint at Tottenham was cut short in January when his contract was unexpectedly canceled in order to make way for a move to Atletico Madrid, where he signed a short-term contract; however, the La Liga giants chose not to renew the Ireland international, leaving him a free agent.

Doherty is expected to return to Wolves ahead of the upcoming Premier League season, according to talkSPORT, after spending ten years with the club between 2010 and 2020.

Wolves fans will be delighted to see the 31-year-old return after winning League One and The Championship with the club during his 302 games in the Midlands. The right-back will now hope to have a strong season under Julen Lopetegui, hoping to assist the Spaniard’s side improve on their 13th-place finish last season.
