Kevin Doyle is moving closer to a transfer to the MLS.
The Wolves striker has been out of form and out of favour for most of the 2014-15 season, and last week we reported that he was in talks over a switch to the MLS.
Now it appears his move to the United States is edging closer to becoming a reality.
The Birmingham Mail is reporting that the Irish target man has flown to America, and talks are ongoing with Colorado Rapids about concluding a deal.
Wages could yet prove to be a stumbling block for the transfer, as Doyle would be forced to take a pay cut. Colorado have already used up their three man allowance in accordance with the ‘Designated Players Rule’, meaning Doyle would have to fit into the MLS salary-capped payment structure. He would therefore have to take a massive pay cut, dropping from a reported £40,00o per week to just a quarter of that.
Having not kicked a ball for Wolves this season, the striker is desperate to leave and may be willing to accept a wage drop. Colorado can sign him right up until the 12th May when the US transfer window closes, but Wolves would like a deal to be struck sooner rather than later.
