The 27-year-old made 42 appearances for Spurs in all competitions last season. He is an enigmatic player who divides opinion. An excellent player who contributes to the attack, his defensive prowess is more than suspect.
By bringing in Doherty, Spurs have actually got themselves an upgrade at right-back. The Republic of Ireland international is a dependable player who is equally proficient going forward and at the back.
While Doherty’s future lies at Tottenham, that of Aurier is unclear. The Ivorian had refused to sign an extension at the club.
According to the report, now that Doherty has signed, Aurier can be considered surplus to needs. He has two years left on his £70,000-a-week deal at Spurs.
