It was not the season that either Wolves or Matt Doherty had hoped for as the Midlands club finished 13th and the wing-back finished the season having been handed just 13 Premier League starts at Tottenham, so Wolves legend Steve Bull has refused to rule out a potential reunion this summer.
Nelson Semedo was Wolves’ second most expensive signing last summer but turned out to be one of their most underwhelming players after failing to emulate Doherty’s importance at Wolves, with the Portuguese international managing just one goal and assist.
Should Wolves bring Doherty back?
There have been links suggesting that Doherty could find himself back at Molineux, however with Jose Mourinho now having left Tottenham Hotspur and Nuno Espirito Santo now not at Molineux, that move would appear more difficult to do.
Doherty was a firm fan favourite during his time at Wolves having been with the club from 2010 and his absence has truly been felt, especially in the final third, but Bull has claimed that a reunion could be on the cards this summer, as he explained exclusively to The Transfer Tavern:
“We might go back in for Doherty, you never know because we might try and get him on loan, who knows?
“I think there will be plenty of options but I think we need to look at centre midfield and up front to strengthen our squad.”
Something that could prove to be a stumbling block before discussions even start, is that one of Spurs’ other right-backs, Serge Aurier, has reportedly already agreed a deal to leave the club this summer, therefore seeing them allow two right-backs to leave would be unlikely.
Both Wolves and Spurs are still on the hunt for a new manager with Nuno Espirito Santo’s departure coming as much more of a shock to everyone associated with the club.
