Mick McCarthy has warned Wolves' rivals that it would take a £50million bid to make him sell Kevin Doyle and the Molineux boss insists that there has been no approach from Arsenal.
The Republic of Ireland striker has been repeatedly linked with the Gunners over the summer after playing a key role in his current club's survival in the Premier League since his £6.5million record arrival from Reading in the June of 2009.
But Doyle said earlier this week that he was happy with Wolves and McCarthy also has no intention of selling unless he receives an offer that is too good to turn down.
He explained: "When Kevin said recently that he was pledging his future to Wolves it suddenly caused a stir.
"The reality is that he was saying it to get everybody off his back. Leave him alone and let him play his football.
"Look, if Manchester United come in and offer the club £50m and give him 200 grand a week, I can't keep him.
"Then I'll have to say, 'thanks, Kevin, all the best, see you'.
"But no, there's not been any approach from Arsenal - I can't be any straighter.
"Doyle will be a player for us unless someone comes in offering the earth, moon and stars for him."
