Tottenham have confirmed the signing of Wolves defender Matt Doherty.

Tottenham confirmed the 28-year-old’s arrival via an official statement on their website, which reads: “We are delighted to announce the signing of Matt Doherty from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

“Doherty has missed just seven league matches in the last four seasons. He has featured in 95 games in all competitions since Wolves returned to the Premier League in 2018, contributing 15 goals and 15 assists in that time.

“Born in Dublin, Doherty has represented the Republic of Ireland at Under-19 and Under-21 levels and won the first of nine senior caps in 2018.

“He will now join up with his national team ahead of their UEFA Nations League games away to Bulgaria and at home to Finland next week before returning to Hotspur Way to train with the rest of the squad ahead of our opening match of the season against Everton.”
