Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey has hailed Kevin Doyle's commitment to the club after he turned down the chance to leave.

Doyle is understood to have snubbed transfer window interest from both Aston Villa and Everton to stay at Molineux.

As revealed by the Republic of Ireland international was the subject of enquiries from both clubs, but he rejected their overtures to stay and help Wolves win promotion back to the Premier League.

Moxey was delighted to see Doyle pledge his future to Wolves.

"The big positive for us with Kevin was that he never fell into that category of 'I want away'," Moxey told the Express and Star.

"There was interest in him and one or two Premier League clubs called us about him and he was aware of it. It never materialised into a bid but there was interest.

"But at no point did he say 'I want to leave' and he deserves great credit for that.

"There were enquiries and they were from established Premier League clubs but Kevin said all along that he was strictly behind us and that sort of commitment is to be praised."
