Tottenham paid agent Jorge Mendes a fortune to bring Matt Doherty across from Wolves this summer, it has been claimed.
Football Insider reports Tottenham paid Mendes a staggering £6million in order to complete the transfer of his client Doherty from Wolves.
The Irish full-back completed his switch to Spurs in the summer in a deal believed to be worth £16m.
However, details of the agreement between both clubs were never fully publicised, with the cost of the transfer simply stated at the time as 'undisclosed'.
Now Football Insider have shone fresh light on the workings behind the scenes, and allege that Mendes pocketed the handsome fee for his role as mediator.
That means Wolves actually only received a cash sum of £10m to part company with Doherty, who was a first-team regular.
