And since then the deal has evolved rapidly with talkSPORT claiming that a £ 15million transfer between the two clubs has been completed.
Neither team has made an official announcement, with journalist Fabrizio Romano saying a few details have yet to be agreed.
If a move is confirmed, it will end Doherty’s 10-year association with Wolves, a decade that has seen him win two promotions and rack up more than 300 appearances.
On social media, the Republic of Ireland international revealed he would return to the UK from Sardinia before potentially concluding the deal.
Doherty’s imminent departure should accelerate Nuno Espirito Santo’s back search, with Ruben Vinagre and Oskar Burr being the only senior full-backs available to him.
Wolves remain stuck in talks with Ainsley Maitland-Niles, with Arsenal rejecting an opening bid estimated at around £ 15million.
Elsewhere, Napoli left-back Faouzi Ghoulam and Valenica right-back Thierry Correia have both been linked, as Wolves look to land their first signing of the summer.
