Wolves announce return of free agent defender

Premier League outfit Wolverhampton Wanderers have, on Thursday, announced the return of a former long-time member of the club’s defensive ranks.

The player in question? Matt Doherty.

The name of full-back Doherty, of course, will be an altogether familiar one to those of a Wolves persuasion.

This comes with the Republic of Ireland international having spent a full decade on the books at Molineux, before departing for Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur back in 2020.

A largely forgetful stint in north London followed, before a mutual contract termination allowed Doherty to move the move to Spain with Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid this past January.

After also failing to make the grade in La Liga, however, the now-31-year-old officially became a free agent earlier this month.

This comes amid confirmation that Doherty has sealed a move back to former stomping grounds, with Wolves.

As per an official statement across the Midlands club’s website and social media platforms:

‘Matt Doherty has rejoined Wolves for a second spell, after previously making more than 300 appearances across a ten-year period at the club.’
