Villa have been linked with a move for Republic of Ireland international Doyle.

"I think Reading will keep the majority of the lads who are there now," the left-back told the Birmingham Mail.

"The season has started and I think the gaffer has said he doesn't want to lose anyone now. The fees will probably go up anyway.

"Of course, if someone really wants someone then they will get it done but I think they will probably keep hold of everyone now and hopefully have a good season and see where that takes them - hopefully back in the Premiership."
