Matt Doherty has taken to social media after training for the first time with his new Tottenham Hotspur teammates today.
The 28-year-old has been one of the most potent attacking full-backs in the Premier League since Wolves’ promotion to the top flight back in 2018 and was signed by Spurs this summer for a rumoured £13.4 million fee.
Soon after sealing his move to North London, Doherty left to join the Republic of Ireland squad for their Nations League games against Bulgaria and Finland.
He started both games as Stephen Kenny’s men drew against Bulgaria and fell to a disappointing defeat in Dublin against Finland, with the right-back coming on the receiving end of some criticism from the fans for his lacklustre displays.
Doherty will be hoping to put memories of Monday evening’s loss against the Finns behind him as he begins his new journey at Spurs.
The right-back reported to training at Hotspur Way on Tuesday and was put through the paces alongside his new teammates.

As some Spurs fans and journalists have pointed out, Doherty has a very good fitness record and has barely been injured over recent years. That is a huge positive for us as it does not appear as if we are going to be signing another right-back even if Aurier leaves. It will be a risk to go into the season with just Gedson and Tanganga as our main backups but it looks like one that Mourinho is prepared to take.
