Republic of Ireland striker Kevin Doyle is weighing up a move to MLS side Colorado Rapids, understands.

Doyle has been aware for some time that he is not part of the plans of Wolves boss Kenny Jackett, with his return to the club last month following an unsuccessful loan spell at Crystal Palace unlikely to lead to a first team return for the experienced marksman.

With his Wolves contract set to expire next summer, the Molineux club are keen to get Doyle off their wage bill and they are currently negotiating with Colorado to find a deal that could see the 31-year-old forward move to America in the next few weeks.

Doyle is interested in the move, but with his wife preparing to give birth in the next few weeks, he will not make any decisions over his future in the next couple of weeks.

Offers for Doyle to make a move in the January transfer window were rejected by the player, but he is ready to make a move to MLS if a deal can be reached with all parties.

Doyle could line up against Premier League legends Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard, while his one-time Ireland strike partner Robbie Keane is currently the reigning MLS Most Valuable Player following his sparkling displays with LA Galaxy last year.
