Report: Matt Doherty Sparks Premier League Interest With Spanish Sojourn Set To End

On transfer deadline day, barely believable news broke that Matt Doherty had left Spurs for Atletico Madrid. A transfer which shocked both Irish and Spurs supporters.

Despite the initial surprise to the move, it was clearly a huge opportunity for the Dubliner, who had found himself warming the bench for Spurs more often than playing.

Sadly, minutes in Madrid have been even tougher to come by for the Irish full-back and after three and half months with Atletico, it looks certain that Doherty's future lies elsewhere.

The former Bohemians man has played just 12 minutes of football under Diego Simeone's side and it's now being reported that a host of Premier League clubs are keen to bring Matt Doherty back to the league.

Doherty was signed on a six-month contract back in January and it would certainly be a shock if he was to be offered a new deal at the club.

Matt Doherty wanted by Premier League outfits

90min are reporting that Wolves are eager to re-sign Doherty, four years after he moved from Molineux to Spurs. Crystal Palace are also rumoured to be interested in signing the Irishman as well, with regular first team football a must for the full-back.


Matt Doherty spent ten years at Wolves, making over 260 appearances and becoming a fan favourite for his work rate and goalscoring capabilities while at the club.

Julen Lopetegui seems to be an admirer of the Ireland international and would certainly suit their style of play.


Championship leaders, Burnley, is another club with reported interest in Matt Doherty, as well as second placed Sheffield United. The Blades are sitting seven points clear of the playoff places and look certain to be promoted back to the Premier League this year.

Doherty would undoubtedly be a big addition to any of the clubs that are rumoured to be interested in his services. A return to the Premier League will also be necessary for Doherty after his tough time in Spain and with the full-back being a vital and integral member of Stephen Kenny's Ireland team, regular minutes are non-negotiable.
