IRELAND INTERNATIONAL KEVIN Doyle says he is happy to stay with Wolves, despite the side being relegated from the Premier League last season.

The player has recently been linked with several Premier League sides including Swansea and Southampton, but insists he is intent on helping his team regain promotion to the top flight.

Doyle added that he was looking forward to working with new manager Stale Solbakken, telling reporters:

“He’s got some fantastic experience in his career. He’ll have new ideas which he’ll be getting across to us and we’ll all get used to each other.”

Doyle also pointed out that the perils of lower league football are nothing new for him.

“I’ve experienced it before so I know what it’s going to be like. You can have a good season after relegation and I was very close to going straight back up with Reading.
