Matt Doherty is on his way to Tottenham after the club agreed a fee of £15million with Wolves for his capture. 

Stand-out performances from the Dubliner in the Wolves jersey in recent seasons no doubt alerted Spurs boss Jose Mourinho to his availability, with Doherty now set to take the place of Serge Aurier in the Londoners defence. 

Doherty made 50 appearances for Wolves last season and has enhanced his reputation as both a reliable defender and significant threat going forward with seven goals to his name.

He played for the club in Sky Bet League One when Wolves were relegated to the third tier in 2013 and has been a key part of their rise to the Europa League under Nuno Espirito Santo.

The 28-year-old started his career at Bohemians and the Gypsies could now be in line to pocket £1.5million from this deal.

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.

Wolves boss Nuno is aiming to reshape the squad, which finished seventh in the Premier League for the second straight season last term.

The club remain in talks with Arsenal for Ainsley Maitland-Niles as Nuno looks for versatile players, especially with wing-back Jonny out long-term with a serious knee injury
