Bohemians could finally be in line for a major payday for their role in the development of Wolves star Matt Doherty, with the Dubliner heavily linked to a move to Tottenham. 

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho is known to be an admirer of the versatile Republic of Ireland international full-back, who is regularly deployed in a more advanced role. 

Former Ireland boss Mick McCarthy brought Doherty to Molineux a decade ago after he impressed in a pre-season game for the Gypsies against Wolves.

The Premier League side paid just €40,000 for a player who hadn't lined out in a competitive senior fixture for the Dalymount Park outfit, with that initial figure thought to have doubled due to add-ons in the intervening years. 

However, Bohs could now be poised for a more lucrative payment, with the club assured of 10% of any subsequent transfer and Doherty linked to a move that could cost Spurs anywhere between £12m and £20m. 

Doherty's industry and eye for goal could prove too tempting for Mourinho to resist, with the 28-year-old racking up 15 goals and as many assists in the last two seasons for Nuno Espirito Santo's men.

Only Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold boasts more impressive statistics for his preferred position among Premier League players.

The 28-year-old would be a natural replacement for Serge Aurier, who looks set to exit Spurs. 

Meanwhile, Wolves have already been linked to a number of potential replacements, including Arsenal's Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Valencia's Thierry Correia.
