Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Kenny Jackett has revealed that no club has made a bid for Republic of Ireland striker Kevin Doyle, despite repeated speculation of a move to Celtic.
The 29-year-old striker hass been linked with a move away from Molineux following Wolves' relegation to League One, as Jackett looks to cut the wage bill at the club. However, Wolves have yet to receive any bids for the 53-time Ireland international.
Jackett believes there is still plenty of time to negotiate a move, despite the league campaign beginning next month. "There have been no approaches so there is no news in terms of a transfer out," Jackett told the Irish Examiner.
"He is a very good professional who has a very, very good pedigree over many seasons. But things have been very quiet with Kevin in terms of approaches. I think that there have not been many clubs who have signed players and as August comes it will step up a gear as we work towards the transfer deadline."
Meanwhile, Doncaster Rovers manager Paul Dickov has admitted that he is very interested in bringing Shay Given to the Keepmoat Stadium, but has ruled out a move for Given's Aston Villa teammate Stephen Ireland. "Shay is somebody I know," Dickov told BBC Radio Sheffield. "We did make an enquiry a couple of weeks ago to take Shay on loan and we are waiting to hear back.
"Stephen has not been mentioned, no. I think people are putting two and two together with Shay and possibly with Stephen being a friend of mine, but there has been no approach made for Stephen."
