KEVIN DOYLE is likely to stay at Wolves this month as the club revealed there has been no interest in the Ireland man.

Wolves were keen to offload some of their top earners, such as Doyle and Wales international Wayne Hennessey, in the transfer window, but reported interest from Middlesbrough last week has failed to materialise.

"It's very quiet. We haven't had one bid or, as far as I know, any enquiry – certainly nothing of any note or any level," said manager Kenny Jackett.


LEAGUE ONE side Peterborough United are hoping to land former Ireland U21 star Rhys Murphy before the transfer window closes.

Murphy(23), has been a big hit in League Two with Dagenham and Redbridge this season since his summer move from Dutch side Telstar and with 12 goals in 28 games, he is the second-top scorer in the league.


STRIKER Mark Griffin hopes his second coming at Dundalk will be a success after he admitted that he made a mistake in leaving the club.

Griffin quit Dundalk to join Derry City at the start of the 2013 season, but his time at the Brandywell was a disappointment and now he's back at Oriel Park, one of two signings announced by boss Stephen Kenny yesterday along with Simon Kelly.

"I shouldn't have left last year, I know that, but I am glad that I got the chance to come back,"

Meanwhile, Stephen Kenny will face up to Danny Wilson on Friday as Barnsley have agreed to come to Oriel Park for a friendly against Dundalk.

Barnsley will bring a strong squad including former Ireland man Liam Lawrence and ex-Derry City star Paddy McCourt.

BRAY Wanderers boss Alan Mathews has strengthened his squad for the 2014 with the re-signing of Seagulls men Danny O'Connor and Dean Zambra.

Appointed as Bray boss two weeks ago, Mathews has so far made just two new signings, Jake Kelly and Adam Hanlon arriving at the club, but Shane O'Connor, Adam Mitchell have agreed to sign new deals having played for Bray last season.
