Matt Doherty’s future with Spurs is already in doubt, after less than one season in North London.
The 29-year-old was signed from Wolves last summer in a deal worth £15 million, but he has failed to impress and could be made available for transfer once more unless there is a pick-up in his form.
He has started just nine Premier League games, only two of them in 2021, and neither of those was a success, picking up a red card against Leeds and being deployed as a makeshift left wing-back in the home defeat to Liverpool.
Doherty has also frustrated his manager on the training ground, and, although he was bought as an upgrade on Serge Aurier, it is the Ivory Coast man who is now ahead of him in the pecking order.
Aurier missed the defeat to West Ham on Sunday, but Mourinho preferred to start with youngster Japhet Tanganga at right-back, with Doherty only coming off the bench at half-time.
