Wolves boss Mick McCarthy has admitted it will take a £50 million offer to persuade him to sell star striker Kevin Doyle.

McCarthy insists there has been "no approach" from Arsenal for the Republic of Ireland international who moved to Molineux from Reading for £6.5 million 12 months ago.

"When Kevin said recently that he was pledging his future to Wolves it suddenly caused a stir," said McCarthy. "The reality is that he was saying it to get everybody off his back. Leave him alone and let him play his football."

The former Sunderland manager added: "Look, if Manchester United come in and offer the club £50 million and give him 200 grand a week, I can't keep him.

"Then I'll have to say 'thanks, Kevin, all the best, see you'.

"But no, there's not been any approach from Arsenal - I can't be any straighter.

"Doyle will be a player for us unless someone comes in offering the earth, moon and stars for him."
