DOYLE’S DEMANDS DELAYING HIS EXIT
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!”
