Wolves legend Steve Bull has called for the club to re-sign Matt Doherty this summer following the defender’s struggles at Tottenham.
The Republic of Ireland international departed Molineux last summer after a decade at the club, making the move to Spurs.
Doherty has struggled to make his mark in north London, however, making just 12 starts in the Premier League and finding himself increasingly out of favour under Jose Mourinho.
It has been claimed that Wolves could give the right-back an opportunity to return this summer as he looks for regular football again.
Bull wants Doherty to rejoin Wolves
Speaking to Football FanCast, Bull has talked up the possibility of Doherty becoming a Wolves player again, saying he would welcome him back with open arms:
“I don’t get why you sell someone who you think is a great asset to a club that might hardly use him. He’s been a bit injured, but he’s a talented player.
“If Wolves did go back for him, I would chop your arm off tomorrow.”
Transfer Tavern take
Doherty returning to Molineux could be a shrewd move for all parties, with the £65,385-a-week earner rarely looking a settled figure at Spurs this season.
He was such an influential performer at Wolves for a number of years, providing so much quality down the right flank, scoring 28 goals and registering 41 assists in 302 appearances.
At 29, the £16.2m-rated Doherty should still have a number of years left in him at the top and he could provide strong competition for Nelson Semedo at right-back if Wolves follow through on Bull’s wishes and bring the Irishman back to the Midlands.
