Republic of Ireland striker has joined QPR on loan for the remainder of the season as Harry Redknapp looks to maintain their Premier League push.
Doyle, who has over 50 international caps to his name, linked up with his new team-mates for the first time this morning and is eligible to make his QPR debut in tomorrow’s Sky live showdown against Burnley at Loftus Road.
“It was all agreed pretty quickly,” the Wexford man said.
“I jumped at the chance to come here to be honest.”
“The club's in a great position for a tilt at promotion and I can't wait to be part of it.
“It was a massive draw to know I'll be part of a promotion push and obviously the manager played a huge role in my decision to come here as well.”
Doyle said he can’t wait for his debut which may well come against Burnley tomorrow.
“The squad here have enjoyed a really positive first half of the season and everyone is looking forward to tomorrow.
“It's a big game and I'm just looking forward to hopefully being involved in some capacity.”
Harry Redknapp believes the addition of Doyle, who will wear the number 14 shirt at Loftus Road, will provide him with another decent option in attack, commenting:
“I like Kevin. He’s a good pro and a good lad who needs to get his career up and running again.”
