Wolves have submitted a bid to re-sign Tottenham defender Matt Doherty this month, according to Football Insider. 

The 29-year-old departed Molineux for Tottenham in the summer of 2020 for a fee in the region of £15 million but has struggled throughout his brief stint in North London so far. 

Doherty has made 10 appearances in all competitions for Spurs this term but has yet to make a single start in the Premier League having fallen below Emerson Royal in the pecking order. 

However, Doherty has now been tipped to seek an exit from Spurs and make a return to Wolves, with Football Insider claiming Bruno Lage’s side have made an opening move to re-sign the right-back. 

The report suggests the West Midlands outfit are ‘very keen’ to re-sign the Republic of Ireland international and talks are now underway regarding a permanent transfer or a loan with an obligation to buy clause.  

Doherty first joined Wolves in August 2010 after impressing during a pre-season game while playing for Bohemians, before eventually amassing 302 appearances for the club.

The move for Doherty just has not worked out and, from the start, he really did not seem to suit Tottenham and the club’s style of play for whatever reason.

If he does secure a move back to Wolves, then it will be in an environment where he is familiar, which will probably allow him to perform better than he is now.
