Striker Doyle vows to stay with Wolves

Wolves striker Kevin Doyle has pledged his future to the Midlands club, despite speculation linking him with a summer move to Arsenal.

The Republic of Ireland international had an outstanding first season at Molineux, after a club record £6.5m move from Reading. The 26-year-old played a major role in Wolves surviving in the Premier League and is happy to pledge his allegiance to Mick McCarthy's side.

Doyle said: "Nothing has changed. I am very happy here at Wolves. All of the players get on so well together, and with the manager and everyone."

Ireland boss Giovanni Trapattoni has claimed "Doyle is ready to play with a great team", but the striker is not over-concerned.

He said: "I am sure he was trying to give me a bit of confidence. It's nice to hear, but I don't get too carried away with it."
