According to TalkSport, Matt Doherty has been informed by the club that he is free to leave this summer.
This comes as a surprise considering Doherty was in some form under Antonio Conte last season forcing his way into the team and bagging 2 goals and 3 assists in 6 apps. He then picked up an injury against Aston Villa in April which saw his season come to an end, unfortunately.
And given that Spurs have been really chasing to sign Djed Spence all summer, it looks like Spurs have decided to sacrifice the Irishman as the wing back that will make way for him, leaving Spence and Emerson Royal as their right wing back options.
Conte signed Emerson Royal only last season from Barcelona and if they sign Djed Spence this summer, he’ll have two young players who he can shape into the sort of player he wants.
Tottenham seems to be turning its attention towards offloading players now after a crazy spending spree in the early part of the summer transfer window, with the likes of Bergwijn, Joe Rodon, Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso all linked with moves away.
If Doherty is going to be sold, Wolves should really look to re-sign him. He would fit right back in and boost Bruno Lage’s team instantly.
