Kevin Doyle joins Queens Park Rangers

31 January 2014

Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Kevin Doyle has linked up with Championship promotion chasers Queens Park Rangers on loan until the end of the season.

The Republic of Ireland international joined Wolves as a Premier League outfit in 2009 but has been plying his trade in League 1 this term following back-to-back relegations.

He has struggled to command regular first-team starts at Molineux in recent weeks and, following the additions of Leon Clarke and Nouha Dicko, Wanderers head coach Kenny Jackett has opted to let Doyle out on loan.

Having linked up with QPR boss Harry Redknapp, the 30-year-old told the club's official website: "It was all agreed pretty quickly. I jumped at the chance to come here to be honest.

"The club's in a great position for a tilt at promotion and I can't wait to be part of it.

"It was a massive draw to know I'll be part of a promotion push and obviously the manager played a huge role in my decision to come here as well."

Doyle is available to make his R's debut in Saturday's crunch televised clash against Burnley as second place hosts third in the Championship at Loftus Road.

Wolves boss Jackett said: "I think this move will be good for Kevin and good for QPR.

"After being at the club for such a long time I think this will stimulate Kevin and it is the right move for all parties.

"Hopefully he can have a crack at getting to the Premier League with QPR."

Doyle has made 25 appearances for Wolves this term, scoring three goals, although he has registered just one league start this month.
