Teenage Wolves prospect Matt Doherty was today celebrating a new contract after being signed up to 2014.

The 19-year-old has penned a new deal that keeps him at Molineux for the next two-and-three-quarter years.

Right-back Doherty cost a bargain £70,000 from Irish club Bohemians in July 2010 and played in last night's Carling Cup third round thrashing of Millwall.

The new contract is reward for his growing impact which has left manager Mick McCarthy already comparing him to Kevin Foley.

McCarthy said: "Matt has just signed a new contract and I'm delighted with him. He was as good as anybody on the pitch last night at right-back.

"He was great and his use of the ball was as good as anybody's. He reminds me a lot of Kevin Foley in the way he plays.

"He had another really solid and mature performance."

Doherty has played three games for Wolves – all in the cups – and ideally is seeking Championship experience on loan to continue his education.

He said: "I guess it's down to my agent to find a club to take me on loan! No one has come in for me yet. Maybe there was someone watching last night and I think the gaffer wants me to go out on loan now.

"I want to play every week so, if I could play in the Championship, I feel I would improve massively."
