(African Stand) — Tottenham Hotspur has confirmed the signing of Republic of Ireland international defender Matt Doherty from Premier League rivals Wolves.

The 28-year-old Republic of Ireland full-back has signed a four-year deal with Spurs, having made over 300 appearances during his time at Molineux.

“We are delighted to announce the signing of Matt Doherty from Wolverhampton Wanderers,” Tottenham confirmed on their official website.

Having come through the youth system at League of Ireland side Bohemians, Doherty moved to Wolves in 2010 and went on to establish himself in the side.

He played in every Premier League game of the 2018-19 season and helped Nuno Espirito Santo’s men to back-to-back seventh-place finishes and a Europa League quarter-final.

He joins Spurs after Wolves accepted a bid understood to be £15million and becomes Jose Mourinho’s third signing of the summer following the arrivals of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Joe Hart.

“I’m very proud to be joining such a big club,” Doherty said.

“(They have) the best stadium in the world and possibly the best training ground in the world from what I’ve seen.

“My time at Wolves was fantastic, I haven’t got a bad word to say about the whole club at all.”
