Kevin Doyle: Expected to attract interest before window shuts

Having slipped into League One, the Molineux-based outfit are aware of the need to cut costs.

Several senior figures have already been allowed to move on or been informed that they are free to do.

Doyle is not among those to have been frozen out of the first team picture, as he recovers from injury, but Jackett concedes that the 29-year-old Republic of Ireland international will not remain part of his plans for long.

He said in the Express and Star: "In terms of Kevin, his wages are too high for League One, for where we are.

"That's common knowledge and between now and the end of the window there will be interest in him."

Jackett is, however, prepared to use Doyle in the short-term, with Wolves currently struggling with numerous knocks.

He told Sky Sports News: "He's fit now and he's back in to full training - looking fine in training as well, but lacking in match practice.

"He's not somebody that I would close the door on. It's right that if we need an experienced forward at any time, then he's there."

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
