Doherty has been involved in Jackett's opening two matches in charge at Molineux, and the former Millwall boss has admitted that he has been impressed with the 21-year-old's contribution.
The 51-year-old told the Birmingham Mail: "We like Matt and think that he's done very well. He's someone who we do see as having a future at the club.
"We've been impressed with him – not just last season but in the two games so far this season, both defensively and going forwards, so we'd like that to continue."
The Republic of Ireland Under-21 international signed for Wolves in 2010.
