Romain Saiss has shown leadership qualities after revealing he is looking out for Rayan Ait-Nouri, following his recent move to the club from Angers.
The talented Frenchman is on a season-long loan at Molineux, and reportedly has an option to buy clause for the club to exercise if he impresses enough.

Ait-Nouri is yet to play for the Wolves first-team, missing out on the squads against Fulham and Leeds United.
It could take a few weeks or so before fans get a chance to see the 19-year-old in action as he acclimatises to his new surroundings.
Hopefully, he’ll soon start to feel totally at ease in the Black Country, with Saiss – who also joined the pack from Angers back in 2016 – seemingly taking the youngster under his wing.
Speaking to the club’s official language, he said: “I’ve tried to help out one of the new boys, Rayan Ait-Nouri, because I know it’s difficult because he doesn’t speak a lot of English.
“It’s a new country for him, he’s young, and I want to help him, but if you practice English day after day you will see in a couple of months that it will not be bad.”
Saiss influence could be huge for Ait-Nouri
It can be difficult for young players to move to club’s abroad, especially the Premier League.
There is potential for the experience to be quite daunting and overwhelming, and so it is really important to get them feeling comfortable so they can show their best on the pitch.
It is great to hear Saiss has put an arm round Ait-Nouri early doors as it’s bound to aid his transition.
