KEVIN DOYLE - IN PROFILE

KEVIN Doyle joined Wolverhampton Wanderers from Reading in the summer of 2009, becoming the club’s record signing in the process.


The Republic of Ireland international – who has over 50 caps for his country – rose to prominence at Cork City, before Doyle moved to England to join the Royals in 2005.


He immediately settled to life in the Championship, helping Reading to promotion and then notching 13 goals in the Premier League in 2006/07.


The striker, now 30, also scored 18 goals in the Championship for Reading during the 2008/09 campaign.


After a move to the Black Country, it wasn't long before Doyle started to become a major influence at Wolves, scoring his first goal for the club in a win against Fulham in September 2009.


And it proved to be an excellent first season at Molineux for Doyle. His total of nine goals from 33 Premier League starts made him Wolves' top scorer.


Although missing parts of the 2010/11 campaign with injury, Doyle was once again a hugely-influential figure for Wolves, scoring eight goals from 31 appearances in all competitions.


Wanderers were relegated from the top flight the following season, with the forward only on target four times.


Wolves were demoted once again last year, though Doyle’s goal return did improve. He scored 10 times in the league.


Doyle has been a regular in the Wolves side aiming for promotion from League One this term, making 23 league appearances, and scoring three goals.
