Tottenham Hotspur have now officially announced the signing of right-back Matt Doherty from fellow Premier League side, Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Lilywhites have revealed that Doherty has signed a contract that will keep him at the club until 2024.

Doherty becomes Spurs’ third senior signing of the summer after Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg joined from Southampton and Joe Hart signed on a free transfer. The club also scooped 16-year-old Alfie Devine from Wigan.

The Independent journalist, Miguel Delaney, revealed earlier this week that Tottenham would be paying an initial £12m for Doherty, which could rise to £16m after add-ons.

Doherty has risen through the divisions with Wolves during his 10 season spell at the club, featuring in League One, the Championship, and the Premier League. The Irish full-back recorded 302 appearances and 28 goals in this time (Wikipedia)

This news follows the sale of right-back Kyle Walker-Peters to Southampton and the rumours that Serge Aurier may also be on his way out of North London.
