Matt Doherty faces an uncertain future at Tottenham Hotspur

In a surprising piece of transfer news, ESPN has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur defender Matt Doherty could be facing an uncertain future just eight months into his spell at the club.

The 29-year-old right-back arrived at Tottenham last summer from Wolves. When the club signed him in a deal worth around £15m, it was hailed as a coup. However, things have failed to work out as planned as the Republic of Ireland international has struggled to make an impact.

Indeed, Doherty has started just nine Premier League games so far this term, with only coming since the turn of the year. The level of his performances have led to frustrations within the Tottenham backroom staff and as per the report, the club could decide to cut their losses on him if things don’t improve.

Doherty, who signed a four-year contract upon joining the club, does not intend to give up less than a year after his transfer to Tottenham and is willing to fight to prove his worth. However, for him to do that, the Irish full-back will need opportunities that may not be forthcoming.

Indeed, Serge Aurier is the first-choice right-back after having started behind Doherty. And even though he is currently injured, Mourinho opted to field Japhet Tanganga at right-back against West Ham on Sunday, albeit, he did send Doherty on at half-time.

Doherty for most of his time at Wolves in the Premier League played as a wing-back. The shift to a four-man defence and the right-back role hasn’t really brought the best out of him. It is up to Doherty to tough it out and nail down his spot in the side, lest he could be set for another transfer – this time away from Tottenham.
