The defender – who has been with Wolves since 2010 – has seen his contract extended until 2018, with a further year-long option that could see him committed to the club until 2019.
After joining the Midlands club at the age of 18, the defender has progressed through the first-team ranks before become a key fixture in Kenny Jackett’s Wolves’ side. He has picked up 56 starts for the club in total, scoring just the two goals.
Kenny Jackett, speaking to the club’s official website, said: “”I am really pleased. At 23 years of age, Matt is at a point in his career where we feel his best years are ahead of him.”
And Wolves’ fans will be echoing that sentiment as the 23 year old commits his long term future to the club.
The Irishman will be hoping to repay the faith of his manager with some more good performances in the Sky Bet Championship, as Wolves’ strive to improve their form and reach the top-six come the end of the season.
The defender is clearly full of potential and the fans at Molineux will be hoping to see his progress sky rocket as they hope to see Wolves improve on last season.
The Premier League is ultimately the goal for Kenny Jackett’s side and Doherty will be hoping that he can be an important part of that mission.
He said: “I feel like I am very involved here now having been here for a few years. I wanted to stay and am glad that the club wanted me to stay too.”
