Wolves have recruited another promising youngster in the shape of Irish defender Matt Doherty.

Highly-rated Welsh striker Jake Cassidy arrived on Tuesday and a deal has now been agreed to bring in fellow teenager Doherty.

The 18-year-old caught Mick McCarthy's eye whilst playing for Bohemians in pre-season against both Wolves and Aston Villa.

He follows in the footsteps of Stephen Ward, who made the move to Molineux from the Dublin club in 2007.

Chief Executive Jez Moxey is pleased with the capture of Doherty, telling the Express & Star: "Matt's performance was noted by Mick and the coaching team in our friendly against Bohemians at the start of pre-season.

"We followed up the interest and after he impressed again in training it was decided to pursue a deal.

"From the time we signed Stephen Ward we have always enjoyed a good relationship with Bohemians and have twice played them in friendly matches.

"Mick has also been very successful with the Irish players he has brought in, and Matt is another young and bright talent with plenty of potential."

Opportunity

Reports suggest the transfer fee is in the region of Ł75,000, with Bohemians set to receive around Ł40,000.

Smaller Irish clubs Belvedere and Home Farm are also set to get a cut after helping Doherty develop before his recent move to Bohemians.

Bohs boss Pat Fenlon said: "We have spoken to his schoolboy clubs here in Dublin and they are happy with what we are doing.

"This is a great opportunity for Matt, sometimes it's not just about making money - and I know we need the money - but we're not standing in his way. He's a very good young player who has a real chance.

"I know Mick McCarthy is very taken with him, so we wish him the best of luck."

Pleased to see him play a part in Hibs getting to the Scots Cup final yesterday. Shame Graham Stack went off injured and Eoin Doyle and Roy O'Donovan were on the bench.

Good to have another option for right back playing at a decent level. Hopefully he can nail down the right back spot for wolves for the season ahead.

Exactly lets hope that this is the start of a substained run in the team for him.

Had another very good game today for wolves in their 3-2 defeat to northampton. He was a bit like coleman as he was constantly attacking down the line and was unlucky not to get a goal or two.  Also looks very composed defending as well.  Mcalinden was also very good and hopefully will have worked himself into wolves starting 11.  Mccarey was very poor and could of done better with 2 of the 3 goals and also was caught out on a few other occasions and was lucky to get away with it

Good to hear young Doherty doing well. We could do with more options at full-back.

I said it when the squad was picked that doherty could have been brought in but its an absolute shame that no young players were brought into the end of season squad. Ridiculous. Instead we had Stepen Kelly who hasnt started for club since January 1st and wasnt in the Reading squad 1st 2 games of the season - unsure if thats due to injury but regardless he shouldnt be getting a look in. He proved why in the Portugal match.

So now O Neill is in a situation where he may well have to pick both Kelly and Ward in his Georgia squad as full back cover or starter, in the latter's case, without either having any games behind them. God forbid that Coleman gets injured. Poor management.

Kelly is injured, and tbf Doherty was in and out of a Wolves team in L1 last year, so I wouldn't exactly say he was an obvious choice for a call up.
We're decent enough..

Ya aware of that. But he's a manager on a 6 figure sum. You don't need to be on that to do the calculations that Kelly will be 31 when this campaign starts, past it and likely to plummet the divisions during the campaign. 

Doherty is no Steve Finnan waiting in the wings but we don't have alternatives. We will have to rely on fringe players through this campaign at some point. And Kelly has been tested, has the experience and we know what he can do. No need for him in that squad on the back of a shocking season.

Who would you have liked to have seen at RB in America? Kelly?
