Michael Kightly says Wolves team-mate Kevin Doyle hasn't been affected by transfer speculation linking him with Arsenal this summer.[LNB] The Republic of Ireland international has been linked with a big-money switch to Arsenal but he remains at Molineux and will be hoping to build on a return of nine goals last season.[LNB]The 27-year-old started his pre-season preparations with a fine goal in the 2-1 defeat at Crewe on Saturday afternoon - and Kightly thinks that was just reward for his hard work.[LNB]"Kevin's a top, top player and sometimes he doesn't get the goals he deserves for his work-rate," he told after the match at Gresty Road. "He deserves that and hopefully he can get many more for us.[LNB]"Kevin's not the type of person to let anything like that (transfer speculation) worry him or affect his game. [LNB]"He just gets on with his work and stays level-headed as he always does."[LNB]Defender Roger Johnson made his first appearance for Wolves since completing his move from Birmingham and Knightly thinks he will prove to be a tremendous acquisition. [LNB]"We know Roger's a top player," he added. "He's had two good years in the Premier League with Birmingham and he's a great addition to the club.[LNB]"He's an ambitious person and a good character and hopefully he can help us push on."
