Matt Doherty facing ‘uncertain’ future at Tottenham with Jose Mourinho considering putting full-back up for sale in summer

Matt Doherty joins Tottenham

Matt Doherty joined Tottenham in the latest summer window from Wolves.

Spurs are understood to have paid £15m to bring the Republic of Ireland international to north London.

Such a fee, at the time, looked to be something of a steal, given how impressive the full-back had been in the previous two campaigns with Wolves.

The 29-year-old was particularly effective going forward, and formed a solid partnership with Adama Traore.

Doherty to be sold in summer window?

Since making the switch to north London, though, Doherty has struggled for any sort of regular game time.

Instead, Serge Aurier has been primarily used by Jose Mourinho as the Lilywhite’s main right-back.

And even when the Ivorian missed out in Spurs’ last outing vs West Ham, Jose Mourinho instead opted to start Japhet Tanganga – who is a centre-back by trade – over Doherty.

Now, less than a year after his arrival from Wolves, Doherty’s future with Tottenham is being called into question.

Doherty remains under contract with the Lilywhites until the summer of 2024.

However, according to a report from ESPN on Monday, Doherty’s future at Spurs is uncertain with it added that Mourinho is harbouring doubts over the defender and is considering making the right-back available for transfer this summer, unless his form improves.
