Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has confirmed on social media that Tottenham Hotspur have reached a total agreement with Wolves for the transfer of Matt Doherty.
The reports linking Spurs with the Wolves star first emerged on Tuesday (Football.London) but the deal has seemingly moved rapidly since then, with several publications reporting that the transfer is inevitable (Daily Mail).
Romano revealed on Thursday that the final details of the deal to bring Doherty to North London were still being sorted out.
However, the Italian has now claimed that both clubs have sorted out the pending details and have agreed on a fee.
He claimed that Tottenham will pay around €16.5million (£14.7m) to land the Ireland international this summer, with personal terms also having been agreed with the defender.
Romano also confirmed that Serge Aurier will be free to leave Spurs in the coming weeks, with AC Milan still interested in the former PSG man’s signature.

While Doherty is by no means a world-class player, he is a fantastic fit for our system. I believe he could be an extremely effective attacking outlet for us, particularly given our centre-backs’ ability to switch play. To get him for around £15m is a sensational piece of business. I suspect Jorge Mendes had a big part to play in us being able to get him for such a cheap price.
