GARY DOHERTY is said to have become a transfer target for two of last season's promoted teams, Leicester City and Cardiff City.

The giant Republic of Ireland international, who can play in defence or attack, may find himself surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane after failing to land a regular starting berth under Glenn Hoddle.

The North London side are believed to be holding out for around £1.25 million for the 23-year-old which may scare off Premiership newcomers Leicester.

Bluebirds boss Lennie Lawrence is a long-time admirer of the former Luton Town star and wants to add depth to his squad to aid his side's hopes of a second successive promotion and may see Doherty as the ideal player to help his side to promotion in Division One.
