Wolves insist Liverpool FC target Kevin Doyle not for sale

Wolves manager Mick McCarthy insists he will not let Kevin Doyle leave the club this month following reported interest from Liverpool.

The 27-year-old, who scored in Wolves' 2-0 win at home to Fulham on Sunday, was on Monday morning linked with a £10million move to the Merseysiders (see below).

Arsenal are also believed to be showing interest in the Republic of Ireland international, but McCarthy has ruled out selling the forward and believes the transfer window should already have closed.

"I think the end of the transfer window should coincide with the start of the season," he said.

"We have started well, but can you imagine what that would do if someone took one of my best players away - not only to me, but to all the other players, to the club? It would just rip the heart out of it.

"Somebody like Roger Johnson has come here with the belief that we were keeping all our players - Jamie O'Hara is the same.

"I don't think it's going to happen, but I would be telling them to get lost."

Doyle on Monday laughed off reports linking him with a move away from Molineux and told The Express and Star: "It didn’t put me off at all – it was funny.

"It was better being linked with those teams, I suppose.

"I will just get on with things. The manager and the lads have a laugh at me."

The transfer window closes on August 31st.
