Wolves boss Kenny Jackett says that he is starting to plan for life without striker Kevin Doyle but will play him if available.

The 29-year-old has been expected to leave the club since they were consigned to relegation last season, with Scottish champions Celtic at one time showing great interest in the striker.

Head coach Jackett told the BBC: "Between now and the end of the window, there will be interest in him.

"In the meantime, he’s not somebody I’m necessarily going to close the door on if he’s right and available for selection and the team needs him."

Doyle missed Saturday's opening draw against Preston North End after sustaining a groin injury, which has affected him throughout pre-season, however he is close to gaining full fitness.

"His wages are too high for where we are. That’s common knowledge," explained Jackett, who put Jamie O’Hara, Steven Ward, Karl Henry and Roger Johnson all up for sale after replacing Dean Saunders as boss.

Karl Henry since has left for Queens Park Rangers, whilst the other three remain no part of Jackett's plans. 

"He [Doyle] is not somebody I have pushed to one side or overlooked, but I haven’t necessarily been planning with him because the expectation is that I was thinking he would go." added former Millwall boss.
