Tottenham are confident of making Wolves full-back Matt Doherty their third signing of the summer, paving the way for Serge Aurier to leave the club.
Spurs and Wolves are finalising the details of a deal worth £15million plus add-ons for the 28-year-old Republic of Ireland international, who has been at Molineux for a decade and has three years remaining on his contract.
Doherty, who would count as another homegrown in Spurs' Premier League squad, made nearly 50 appearances last season as Wolves made a deep run in the Europa League, impressing Spurs manager Jose Mourinho. As well as right-back, he can play on the left side of defence, in midfield and even at centre-half.
The Irishman recently changed representation to super-agent Jorge Mendes, a close associate of Mourinho who is influential in the running of Wolves.
Spurs have already offloaded right-back Kyle Walker-Peters to Southampton this summer but Doherty's likely arrival is set to signal the end of Aurier's three years in north London.
