Will Doyle, Ward and Hunt be next?

Will Doyle, Ward and Hunt be next?

With Steven Fletcher expected to depart Molineux for Sunderland over the next 24 hours, this season could be a big year for Kevin Doyle.

Many had expected the Republic of Ireland striker to be one of many departures over the summer, but unlike other players who handed in transfer requests and picked up 24 hour viruses preventing them from playing, the 28-year-old striker instead pledged his allegiance to Wolves.

He was heavily linked with a return to his former club Reading following their promotion back into the Premier League, but Doyle quite openly said that he wasn't interested in a return to Reading and has even hinted that he isn't after a move to a side that will be battling against relegation from the Premier League this year.

However that does not mean that he wouldn't be interested in a move to Everton and the Daily Mail believe that David Moyes could well be set to make yet another move for the Ireland man.

Everton had a January bid rejected, but Moyes could rekindle his interest and was at Molineux on Tuesday, reportedly to watch Doyle and Stephen Ward.

Everton have money to spend this season after the sale of Jack Rodwell to Premier League champions Manchester City for £25million.

The Mail also believe that Stephen Hunt is set to make a move to Fulham.

Vital Wolves Comment: The exodus was inevitable, but at least in regards to Fletcher and Jarvis we should be bringing in a good amount of money into the side.

Doyle is also contracted until 2015, so fingers crossed Jez can get a good fee for him if Everton are set to make a move for him.

right, ad-controversial-man here again. If we can get 75p for Hunt, snap their hands off - bye bye birdie !! If we are going to insist on playing Ward at LB, then sell him on too - he is rubbish there. If we are going to start using him in the wing / up front, then I would say Ward is worth more to us to stay at the club. Doyle, I have always liked him, but the muppet playing him alone u front stifled his play, unless we get offered somewhere in the region of 10 mil, I'd much prefer him staying on and forming a deadly partnership with Seb or Siggy ...

Not controversial...just your opinion. I actually agree with you on all of the above.

I agree AdMant. The official site has just put out something about team spirit. Well, once this cleansing process is over, then, THEN, we can hope for team spirit.

I actually agree with all you say also. However I have a feeling you dont rate hunt as much as I would. But although I might think hes a better player, he spends far too much time in our sickbay.

I expect that Moyes is making the purchase of Doyle a precondition for taking Ward off our hands. I do not wish to slag off the player (although I often have) because he is a good utility forward BUT he is not a left back. Well, not a defensive one, even if he overlapped well with MJ. And that's gone now. I think we have done well out of MJ's sale to WHU. He is nippy and is capable of getting to the by-line but when he swings his boot it is often more in hope than expectation. As in the last two games, his range-finder is still set too high.

Not this season Greg...looked very good but still more of an attacking midfielder rather than an out and out striker.

Agreed all! lets face it, moxy has done well with the sales of Jarvis and Fletcher ( i suppose he's got to be good at summat). if we get our money back for Doyle (6 mill) let him go. He does'nt score enough. Ward,a good pro but limited...2 mill? Hunt, give him away with a pie!!

I would not sell Doyle unless we made a profit. I think he is an outstanding player and he will score with a manager who plays a forward as a forward as opposed to a donkey. He was never going to score many considering what role he was given. Ward I keep hearing people praise him, but no I don't like him at LB. Many managers seem to disagree with us. Even the Trap thinks he can do the job. I think he is a Wolves man. I think he does his all for the shirt so we shall see. Hunt has just never been the player we expected and I would be happy to see him go, without expecting too much bargaining when it comes to the fee.

Nice to hear from you again, NYCW and agree with your points. Are you still coming to the Leicester match on 16 September. If so, get in touch.
