Much has been made of Kevin Doyle signing a new deal, apparently it ends speculation linking him with Arsenal and other clubs.
But while it is great that the 28-year-old Republic of Ireland forward is obviously happy at Molineux and working with Mick McCarthy, a new contract in todays football world means very little.
He already had two years remaining on his last deal, so no doubt he has gained a bumper pay-rise and if we drop out of the Premier League during that time he probably has a get-out clause so he can walk for a previously agreed fee.
Just because he has signed until 2015, doesn't for one moment mean guarantee he will be here in four years time.
So realistically this new contract doesn't end speculation linking him with the likes of Arsenal, Juventus and Liverpool like he has had in the past, it just means he's less likely to be going anywhere in the immediate future!
Carlos Tevez at Manchester City is a character who springs to mind, last season who would have thought the situation this week would ever have happened? Players simply have no desire to honour their contracts if they want to leave and situations can change quickly.
But anyway it is great news all the same!
'It's great news that Kevin has signed the new contract and his future is now secured for another four years,' the Wolves gaffer told The Independent.
He added: 'He has been a key player for us in maintaining our Premier League status over the last two seasons when he has made a major contribution.
'From day one when he arrived he settled at the club and has been the consummate professional in the way he plays and also conducts himself off the pitch. He remains a big part of what we are trying to achieve here, and we are delighted that he has agreed to extend his stay.'
Vital Wolves Comment: I know I've taken a slightly negative on the news and this isn't any slant on either Kevin Doyle or this extended deal. I am pleased it has been concluded, but I think more has been made of it than was needed. Or perhaps I just got up out of the wrong side of bed this morning.
