Wolves close in on Kevin Doyle

Wolves are reported to be in talks with Reading over a possible deal to bring Kevin Doyle to Molineux. The Republic of Ireland striker has a £6.5m release clause in his current contract and newly promoted Wanderers are looking to bolster their squad ahead of the start of the Premier League season.

Doyle has a decent scoring record at Reading, bagging 55 goals in 154 appearances, but the Royals' failure to secure promotion for the second season in succession could mean that the 25-year-old striker decides to move on to another club.

While Wolves appear favourites to capture Doyle's signature both Everton and Aston Villa have shown interest in the former Cork City player in the past and could be tempted to better Wanderers' offer.
