"Whenever you start something new, you want to start well, you want to get off to a fast start. I can't wait to get going.

"There was a friendly yesterday. I wanted to travel down yesterday and play in the game. That's how excited I feel about coming here.

"My time at Wolves was fantastic. I've got nothing bad to say about the club but I feel coming here is going to take my game and career to the next level.

"I really feel like I'm taking a big step forward. You can probably see it in my face, I'm so excited to get going. One of the best days in my career so far."

Doherty will now join up with the Ireland squad for the Nations Cup games against Bulgaria and Finland.
