Wolves striker Kevin Doyle in the dark over future

Kevin Doyle insists he is still in the dark despite claims that his five-year Molineux stay will finally be over this week.


Reports from Loftus Road suggest the 30-year-old Ireland striker will this week complete a £1m permanent switch to the club he helped return to the Premier League.

But the player, currently on international duty on the Irish trip to the USA, remains "in the dark" and hasn't even ruled out a return to Wolves.

"I'll have no problem going back and everyone is perfectly civil and fine with me. It's not a case people don't talk to me," he said of the atmosphere he left behind when he made his loan switch to QPR in January.

"They have decisions to make and they'll make them. When I'm back it will be enjoyable training and we'll see then.

"It's up in the air, I am here until the end of the USA trip and back to Wolves on July 7, that's all I know, that's the only guarantee I have

"There is nothing said and nothing has been guaranteed. That's fine. I'm used to that. I've a year left at Wolves and that's the only thing that's certain.

"It's all fine, I enjoyed my loan move, though. It was fantastic and it will be interesting to see what happens."

Doyle is one of nine high-earning senior players now deemed surplus to Kenny Jackett's requirements and who the club would ideally like to move on this summer.

The Republic star, who qualifies for a League One winners medal after making 24 appearances last season, was one of the players under discussion in a meeting between QPR manager Harry Redknapp and owner Tony Fernandes at the weekend.

That was followed by speculation that the Doyle deal would be completed this week after Fernandes signalled a change in policy as to how his club would go about a Premier League campaign.

Fernandes said: "We have brought in players who've been at big clubs before and we got our fingers burned.

"We have a different philosophy from this time two years ago. We know what we want, we have a list of targets that we think are the right sort and will add tremendous value to the club."
