Wolves To Offer Matt Doherty Bumper New Deal Amidst Spurs Interest

Republic of Ireland international Matt Doherty is set to sign a new deal with Wolves as the Molineux club look to ward off interest in the right-back from Premier League high-fliers Tottenham.

Doherty is currently under contract with Wolves until 2021 and has been one of the standout performers in the league this season, picking up September’s PFA Player of the Month award.

Wolves currently sit in ninth place in their first season back in the Premier League with Doherty registering three goals and four assists in his side’s surprise push for the top eight.

The Mirror are reporting that Doherty is set to sign a deal which would at least double his money at the club, as the right-back has reportedly also drawn the attention of Spurs who feel that the former Bohemians man would be a good addition to their squad as they look to make a push for the Premier League title.

The report also outlines that super-agent Jorge Mendes, who represents Cristiano Ronaldo, Jose Mourinho as well as a number of Wolves’ Portuguese contingent currently at the club, will likely be the one negotiating the deal on Doherty’s behalf.

The 26-year-old has been operating without an agent throughout his career, with his father, Tom, overseeing his affairs.

Doherty is understood to be in no rush to leave Molineux.
