The right-sided wing-back made a sensational switch from Wolverhampton to north London for a reported fee of £16 million, but the 29-year-old has since only featured in 39% of Jose Mourinho’s starting XIs this season.
Reports in Football Insider have subsequently linked Wolves with a potential move to re-sign their former stalwart for a cut-price fee.
Speaking to Football FanCast, Bull backed the Wanderers to re-sign the Republic of Ireland international: “Bringing him back on loan could be a possibility for Wolves. I could see them doing that.
“I just can’t see Wolves selling him and then wanting to bring him back again a year later, but you never know – he could come back on loan and we might see him in pre-season.”
With Doherty seemingly losing the trust of his manager to hold down the right-back spot, a cheap move could make sense for all parties.
Even when Doherty, who is valued at £16.2 million (as per Transfermarkt), has starred for Spurs, he has produced some excellent individual records that exhibit his true capabilities.
