Report: Matt Doherty's Move Back To The Premier League Looks Imminent

It looks very likely that Matt Doherty will be on his way back to the Premier League next season, reuniting with his old club Wolves.

In an exclusive report from TeamTalk, the website stated that the club and player are in advanced talks, as Doherty looks for a move away from Atletico Madrid.

His move to Spain from Spurs, at the end of the January transfer window, raised eyebrows at the time and proved to by fairly disastrous for the 31-year-old full-back, who only managed two substitute appearances for the La Liga club.

Doherty's original stint at Wolves began in 2010 after signing from Bohemians for a fee of €80,000. The Dubliner spent a decade at the Molineux, and made over 300 appearance, before signing for Spurs in 2020 for £13.4 million.

It is a very positive move for Doherty - whose career has somewhat faltered over the last year - with Wolves enjoying a resurgent second-half to last season's Premier League campaign, where they finished 13th under new manager Julen Lopetegui.

The transfer will also continue the brilliant recent trend in Irish football, that has seen numerous players make promising moves to the Premier League, such as Dara O'Shea signing for Burnley, and Chiedozie Ogbene heading to Luton Town.

Nathan Collins has stayed in the Premier League with his recent move to Brentford, but it is also a step up, with Brentford finishing 9th in last year's Premier League.


The promotion of Burnley and Sheffield United will see the return of John Egan, Michael Obafemi, and Josh Cullen to the Premier League, while Tom Cannon has been linked with an interesting move to England's top division.
