Wolverhampton Wanderers are hoping to sign Tommy Doyle but the Manchester City talent isn’t totally convinced yet.

Wolves certainly need to add midfield talent having allowed Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho to leave this summer.

A top target appears to be Doyle, but The Sun’s Alan Nixon reports that the Manchester City prospect isn’t sure.

Nixon claims that Doyle has been telling friends that he wants to make sure that he has a starting role at Wolves if he is to make the move.

City seem ready to cash in on Doyle this summer and Wolves are ready to strike a deal.

However, Doyle wants assurances that he would play regularly at Molineux before committing to joining Julen Lopetegui’s men.

Doyle is understood to fancy a return to Sheffield United but the Blades may not be able to afford him.

That leaves Wolves as the most likely destination but Doyle still needs a little convincing yet.

Who is Wolverhampton Wanderers target Tommy Doyle?

Doyle was born in Manchester and has now been in the City ranks since the age of just eight.

First-team appearances have been hard to come by though with Doyle playing just seven times for City.

Doyle has now spent two seasons on loan away from City, first joining Hamburg in 2021 in a move which really didn’t work out.

Cardiff City took over that loan spell in the second half of that season before Sheffield United pounced last summer.

Doyle played an important role as Sheffield United won promotion to the Premier League with nearly 1900 minutes under his belt.

Three goals and four assist showed how the all-action Doyle and impact the final third.

Wolves now fancy betting on Doyle’s potential in a permanent move – but they must first convince him of his importance to Lopetegui’s setup.
