Doyle signs new Wolves contract

Irish striker Kevin Doyle has put pen to paper on a new contract at Wolves, which will keep him at Molineux until 2015.

The attacker became the club’s record signing back in 2009 when he moved to the Midlands from Reading in a £6.5million deal, and has hit the net 18 times in his tenure at the Premier League side.

Doyle has quickly become a fans favourite, and is delighted to have agreed the new deal.

“I’m delighted to have signed the new contract,” he told the club’s official website.

“It’s something we’ve talked about for a while and to be honest it’s been agreed for a while between myself and the manager and it was just a case of everything getting it all sorted.

“I don’t really think there was anything in the speculation this summer. I’d actually spoken to the gaffer on the very first day of pre-season when we talked about this contract and I was keen to get it done.

“I am very happy here and am just looking forward to carrying on with the season,” he concluded.

Wolves manager Mick McCarthy is ecstatic to have his forward commit to the team, and feels he will be important in the side’s continued growth in the top flight.

“It’s great news that Kevin has signed the new contract and his future is now secured for another four years. He has been a key player for us in maintaining our Premier League status over the last two seasons when he has made a major contribution.

“From day one when he arrived he settled at the club and has been the consummate professional in the way he plays and also conducts himself off the pitch.

“He remains a big part of what we are trying to achieve here, and we are delighted that he has agreed to extend his stay,” the coach stated.
