WOLVES striker Kevin Doyle has been warned that he could end up stay­ing at Mo­lineux.

An ask­ing price in ex­cess of £2m and Doyle’s per­sonal terms have so far kept in­ter­est in the for­mer Read­ing marks­man to a min­i­mum this sum­mer with Burn­ley boss Sean Dy­che ad­mit­ting his in­ter­est has cooled due to wage de­mands.

Wolves man­ager Kenny Jack­ett has been plan­ning on life with­out the Re­plu­bic of Ire­land striker but now ad­mits Doyle may now end up stay­ing.

Jack­ett said:“A fully fit and fir­ing Kevin Doyle is an as­set for any team. All I have said is the like­li­hood is that he won’t be play­ing in League One this sea­son.

“His salary is very high for us but I have never closed the door on him and said that he is not part of my plans. It is an on-go­ing process.

“Kevin is cer­tainly re­al­is­tic enough to know that some­thing has to be right for him in terms of him leav­ing. If it is not there and he trains and plays well, has he got a fu­ture at Wolves?

“Yes, if his stan­dard of play is good enough – like any other player. We will keep as­sess­ing it and see what flur­ries come in.

“I don’t think he’s un­happy at the club. He is not one of those that doesn’t get on with it when he is asked and he is fit and avail­able and he has been for a week or two now.

“I am sure he would say the same that some­thing would have to suit him. If he is to leave then it would need to be some­thing that suits him and us.

“If that doesn’t hap­pen then does he have a fu­ture here? Yes.We will keep as­sess­ing it.

“We are try­ing to move play­ers as there are some high earn­ers here for the Cham­pi­onship let alone League One.

“There are still two weeks left be­fore the trans­fer win­dow closes on Septem­ber 2 and the na­ture of it in this coun­try is that it all hap­pens very last minute for some rea­son.

“We should do our shop­ping ear­lier!”
