FOLLOWING A BRILLIANT debut campaign in Premier League football with Wolves this season, Ireland defender Matt Doherty has been rewarded with a new deal until 2023.

The Dubliner first moved to Molineux in 2010 after impressing during a pre-season friendly playing against Wolves for Bohemians, and the defender has gone from strength-to-strength ever since.

Doherty was named Wolves’ Player of the Season and Fans’ Player of the Season at the end of the 2015/16 campaign and was instrumental as Nuno Espírito Santo’s men secured promotion a year later.

Doherty has registered three goals and four assists in the Premier League this season, scoring three more in the FA Cup, while this season also saw the 27-year-old make his 200th appearance for the club.

Friday saw Wolves captain Conor Coady also agree a new long-term contract until 2023. The Liverpool Academy graduate moved to Molineux in 2015, after time with Sheffield United and Huddersfield Town, and has since become a fans’ favourite.
