Ireland international Kevin Doyle's loan period at Crystal Palace is over today and will not be extended, seeing the Wexford man return to parent club Wolves.
New Palace boss Alan Pardew has deemed Doyle to be surplus to requirements, despite his desire to bring in new attacking talent, according to The Guardian.
Doyle fell out of favour with Wolves manager Kenny Jackett, who took charge of the club at the beginning of last season.
“I am more than happy to play if selected but I haven’t been in the manager’s plans, so I’m not sure what will happen,” Doyle said. “I haven’t spoken to anybody at the club about it and all I know is the date [19 January] I have to report back.
“Having been at QPR for the second half of last season, it’s been a year since I’ve been at Wolves, so I’m not sure what to expect.
"If another club wants to take me on loan, I would consider it if I’m not going to play at Wolves.”
The 31-year-old did, however, despite the circumstances back Pardew to keep Palace in the Premier League, saying: “Of all the managers I’ve played under, and there have been quite a few, I think Pardew left one of the best first impressions and I’m sure he’ll be able to keep them up. He’s got the right plan and right approach.”
