The 25-year-old Republic of Ireland striker has already been shown around the Premier League new boys' Compton Park training ground after Wolves triggered a release clause in his contract.

The signing would be more double than their joint-record fees of �3m for Kenny Miller and Ade Akinbiyi.

Wolves have already signed midfielder Nenad Milijas from Red Star Belgrade and Doyle's former Reading goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann.
