90 min have revealed that Matt Doherty is generating plenty of interest among Premier League clubs ahead of the summer transfer window.
Doherty signed a six-month deal with Atletico Madrid in January after his contract at Tottenham was terminated by mutual consent.
The 31-year-old admitted that while the initial plan was for him to join the La Liga side on loan, the decision was made to terminate his contract once Spurs realised they were at the limit of the number of players they could loan out (The Independent).
The move to the Spanish capital has not worked out for the right-back, who has made just one appearance for Diego Simeone’s men so far.
90 min have now claimed that Atletico will not offer Doherty a new contract when his current deal runs out in June.
The former Spurs man is thus expected to return to the Premier League, with several clubs already keen on his services.
The report states that Crystal Palace, Burney and his former club, Wolves, have all shown interest in signing Doherty while Burnley are also eyeing a move for the experienced star ahead of their return to the top flight.

It certainly is not surprising that Doherty is generating interest, given that he is a proven performer in the Premier League.
That is why Tottenham’s decision to terminate his contract came as a shock to me as the North London club could have easily sold the 31-year-old for around £10m.
