Long says Doherty windfall will be used wisely at Bohemians


Bohemians manager Keith Long says there is no danger of the club wasting any money coming their way from the transfer of Matt Doherty.

The Republic of Ireland full-back is reportedly on the verge of a £15million (€16.75m) move from Wolves to Tottenham.

Bohs - who sold Doherty to Wolves for £75,000 in 2010 - are entitled to 10 per cent of any fee.

The Dalymount club could therefore be in line to pocket €1.675million. In prize money terms, such a windfall would be the equivalent of five SSE Airtricity Premier Division titles.

"There's no doubt we could put that to good use, that type of windfall," Long told OTB Sports ahead of Bohs' Europa League qualifier away to Fehervar.

"Any club would be over the moon with that type of investment, or in this case it's a 'sell-on'.

"It's a return on Matt Doherty. Matt's been away in the UK, he's been performing at a very very high level for Wolves and it's a big move for him.

"The club will be rewarded, if that was to transpire.

And obviously then we have to be very very prudent in what we do with that money to ensure that the projects we want to work on, and the areas that we need to improve upon at the club, that that money - if it happens - is invested in those areas.

"With the people at the club, with the vision we have for the club, there's a clear identity there and a clear understanding of the bigger picture."
