Kevin Doyle today insisted the excitement of winning something with Wolves this season persuaded him to stay at Molineux.
The £6.5m striker, who scored his first goal of the campaign in Saturday’s 3-2 win over Swindon, believes no offer matched what he feels this new Wolves side can achieve under head coach Kenny Jackett.
“I wanted to be part of a winning team and have a season where we’re in contention for something, because it’s been a while for us who are still here at Wolves since that’s happened,” said Doyle, who turns 30 on Wednesday.
“If I was going to leave it was going to have to be for something rather exciting because I felt this was going to be an exciting year at Wolves.
“It wasn’t a case of looking to leave just for the sake of leaving.
“We’ve had our bad years but hopefully the only way is up.”
Doyle again revealed he wants to give something back to the club after being part of the ‘double-dip’ relegation.
“I don’t want to sound corny, but the plan is to give something back and try to get promoted,” he said.
“The supporters have been fantastic to me after two tough seasons.
“When you see people sticking by you and want you to do well.”
