Wolverhampton Wanderer’s manager Mick McCarthy is confident that any speculation regarding Kevin Doyle‘s future will not distract the striker from focusing on his side’s battle for Premier League survival.
The hard-working forward’s form has been a key factor in Wolve’s survival plight this season, and his outstanding work rate (coupled with an eye for goal) has apparently caught the eye of both Aston Villa and Everton – who are both said to be keen to sign the Irishman in the summer.
But McCarthy seems confident that such rumours will not affect Doyle;
“He’s been terrific and, to tell you the truth, I would be more surprised if top teams weren’t sitting up there and taking notice. There is a lot being spoken about Doyley, but I tell you what, he just takes it in his stride.
He is a team player and he doesn’t get carried away with it all. He just gets on with the job. He loves it.
Speculation about him doesn’t bother me and it certainly doesn’t seem to bother him.”
Wolves currently find themselves 14th in the table and five points clear of the relegation zone.
