Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Kevin Doyle can leave for Premier League newbies Hull City - if he is willing to half his £40,000-a-week contract - according to the Mirror.
After successive relegations with the Midlands club, he finds himself in the third tier, after plying his trade in England's top division for five seasons with Wolves and Reading.
Kenny Jackett is keen to slash the wage budget, and Doyle is one of his top earners. Both Hull and Celtic are interested in the 29-year-old, but will not stump up more than £20,000-a-week for the striker.
The Republic of Ireland international hit 37 goals in his five seasons in the Premier League, and the Tigers are keen to add some experience to their front-line ahead of the new season, after already adding Danny Graham and Yannick Sagbo to the ranks.
The move can go ahead after Steve Bruce agreed to fork out £3m for the striker, who now has to decide whether he wants to take a 50% wage cut in order to play at the top level again.
His contract at Wolves runs out in 2015 and, at 29, this might well be his last chance to play at the pinnacle of English football.
With the World Cup in Brazil just 10 months away, Giovanni Trappattoni may well also want the move to happen, should his side qualify, he will want all of his strikers playing at the highest level during the 2013/14 campaign.
