Wolves defender Romain Saiss has reportedly been offered a two-year contract by the club.
According to The Telegraph, Wanderers have now opened talks with the Morocco international about him potentially extending his stay in the Black Country.
The star currently stands to leave the club as a free agent at the end of the season.
But it seems Wolves officials are looking to avoid that scenario.
Saiss has been a crucial member of the squad for Bruno Lage this season.
So far, he has made 28 appearances for the club this season, all of them starts.
He is someone Bruno Lage took a liking to right from the off. The 31-year-old has really impressed on the whole under the new manager.
There were probably few people who saw this level of form coming.
Saiss has shown himself to be capable at Premier League level, but does have his limitations.
But those limitations have not often been on show this term. He’s helped Wolves become one of the most solid teams in the Premier League.
It remains to be seen if the player will agree to this new deal that is supposedly on the table.
Romain Saiss deserves a contract extension at Wolves
Wolves are right to offer Saiss an extension at Molineux.
It is the least he deserves for the season he has had.
Two years is actually quite a generous offering from the club. The player does turn 32 later this month, so he could very easily only have gotten an offer of just one more year.
Clearly, the club really value Saiss. He is well respected, with Max Kilman branding him ‘brilliant’ earlier this year and saying how much he has helped him.
At the end of the day, he’s also versatile, durable and one of the leaders in the squad. It makes sense the club want to keep him around for the foreseeable.
