Doyle rejoined the Under-21 squad after meeting Coppell and scored the equaliser in the draw with Israel.
The striker is in his third season with Cork and is the club's top goalscorer this season with six goals.
Stoke City, Burnley and Charlton were all believed to have made enquiries about the Wexford-born player.
The director of the Reading's youth academy is Eamon Dolan, brother of Pat Dolan, the manager who brought Doyle to Cork.
