Kevin Doyle is back in the Premier league after signing with Mick McCarthy's Wolves in a deal worth $10.6 million dollars.

"I'm delighted to get the move sorted and can't wait to get going," he said.

Doyle was happy to sign on the dotted line and hook up with former Republic of Ireland McCarthy.

"I spoke to the manager and chief executive over a week ago and came to the training ground to see everything. I've been making my mind up over the last couple of weeks and am just really pleased the decision has been made," Doyle said on Wolves' website.

"The facilities here are top class and it's great to be going back into the Premier League again. I'm sad to be leaving Reading because I had some great years there but I'm going with their blessing as well which is nice. This is a fresh start."

Doyle was said to be coveted by several clubs, including Aston Villa, but the Wexford native revealed that is was the newly promoted Wanderers that made the all important move.

"Wolves were the first club that actually came in and settled things with Reading and so they were the first club I spoke to," he said.

"I was expecting a long summer but Wolves were in straightaway.It was nice to see how keen they were and when I came in and met the manager I just got on really well with him. I had a good easy conversation with him and it felt right."

Doyle will join fellow international Andy Keogh at Moilneux.
