WOLVES manager Kenny Jackett admits that the future of Ireland man Kevin Doyle at the club will depend on what offers – if any – are made for the striker over the summer.

Doyle (pictured) is under contract with Wolves for another two seasons but the fact that the club will be in League One next season means that he is unlikely to remain at Molineux.

"We'll have to see what happens. It very much depends on what calls we have for Kevin," said Jackett, who is due to meet the Wolves players for the first time when they report back for pre-season training next Monday.

"Also it will come down to what Kevin thinks himself. He is a very well-respected professional. He is a fantastic player who has had a terrific career.

DICTATED

"So what happens will be dictated, one, by his own thoughts, and two, by the calls, if any, that we get.

"I need to talk to the players and that is something we need to address and not take too much time over because starting the season well is going to be very important," added Jackett.

Stephen Hunt has already left the club but Ireland internationals Doyle, Stephen Ward and Kevin Foley, as well as U21 caps Matt Doherty, Aaron McCarey and Anthony Forde remain on the books.
