Wolves Make Tommy Doyle’s Loan Move from Man City Permanent

Wolves trigger the £4.3 million buy option for Tommy Doyle

As per the reports, the Midlands-based club Wolves have made the loan transfer of Tommy Doyle from Man City permanent by triggering the £4.3 million buy option nearing the closing stages of the 2023-2024 Premier League season. The Old Gold took the midfielder in a swap deal from Man City when they sold Matheus Nunes to the reigning Champions in the summer transfer window of 2023-2024.

Wolves had the buy option inserted in his contract as the midfielder completed a loan move to the Molineux. With Tommy Doyle making his way into Wolverhampton’s first team and showing glimpses of his ability and skills, the club manager Garry O’Neil often heaped praises on how influential the 22-year-old’s presence has been for his side.

With injury woes grueling into the club’s first-team squad, Doyle got his chances and a bit of steady run in the playing eleven to prove his metal to the club’s hierarchy and the home supporters. With the season end approaching it became kind of a no-brainer that the Old Gold were likely to make his loan move permanent and they did the same by making the public announcement. He will officially be a Wolves player from July 1, 2024.

Tommy Doyle has so far made 24 appearances for Wolves in the 2023-2024 Premier League campaign. He has also played five FA Cup games for the club this season, and a solitary Carabao Cup match. His only goal for the Old Golds has come in one of his outings in the FA Cup. But, the dynamism that the Man-City loanee brought to the Wolves midfield was visible under Gary O’Neil.

The 22-year-old provides adequate support to the lack of Mario Lemina, and Joao Gomes in the midfield as the club found themselves amidst plenty of injury worries catering to a paper-thin squad in terms of players available. Doyle slowly and steadily made his way into the playing eleven as mid-season injuries aided him to start a decent number of games, and he took the opportunities with both hands.

Despite starting just about 35 percent of the games for Wolves since his move from Man City, he has become a pivotal part of Gary O’Neil’s plans moving into the next Premier League season of 2024-2025. His permanent move will give the Midlands side a reliable and handy player on their hands in the next campaign.
