Wolves are ready to turn down the opportunity to re-sign Matt Doherty from Tottenham this month, according to a fresh transfer rumour.
The Lowdown: Doherty tipped for Wolves return
The 29-year-old has struggled to make a significant impact at Spurs since leaving Molineux in 2020, making just 42 appearances in the last couple of seasons.
As such, Doherty has been linked with a return to Wolves in the January transfer window, in a move that could potentially go down well with Wanderers supporters given his incredible production in his last spell with the club, scoring 28 times in over 300 appearances..
If a new report is to be believed, however, the 25-cap Republic of Ireland international will not be making his way back to the Midlands.
Who should Wolves sign?
The Latest: Contrasting rumour emerges
According to The Mirror, Wolves are ‘ready to snub’ a return for Doherty, with the player himself not thought to be keen on the idea of a move back.
The right-back still wants to remain in the Premier League, however, and an exit from Spurs could still be on the cards.
The Verdict: Could be an error
Doherty was a brilliant servant for Wanderers over many years, so the idea of missing out on a reunion with him is disappointing.
Granted, the former Black Country star is about to turn 30 later this month but he has been hailed as ‘absolutely superb’ by Danny Mills in the past and his attacking quality is undeniable, having registered 41 assists for Wolves last time out – that sort of creativity from the flank would not go amiss.
He would provide ideal competition and support for Nelson Semedo, adding depth in a position that requires players to maintain an immense level of fitness.
