Romain Saiss looks as though he will indeed be leaving Wolves at the end of the season.
The defender has given an interview with Sky Sports and spoken about his immediate future.
The 32-year-old’s current deal is up at the end of June, and there has been a lot of speculation about whether he will extend.
If that is the case, then the current offer is seemingly not one he’d accept.
He told Sky: “More or less (my future is decided). More away than staying.
“I think if everything is not done before the end of the season it just means it is time to go because I want to be fixed for next season. With the World Cup, I need to start the season at the right time. I need to know what will happen with me as soon as possible.”
On the whole, Saiss has enjoyed a really solid season with Wolves. So it is little wonder plenty of sides would like to take him on a free transfer.
Saiss added: “If I have to leave I just say thank you for the support through these six years. Maybe I am not the best player they have seen at this club. But I always fought for the club, always gave my best. I gave everything. If they can keep something in their mind it is this.
“I will be a wolf forever.”
Romain Saiss will be missed if he leaves Wolves
These comments certainly suggest an exit is very likely. And it would be a shame if Saiss did go.
It is exactly as he says – he has always fought for Wanderers and given his best.
He may never have been an outstanding technician. And he could make a few mistakes in a season.
But Saiss has been a sensational signing for the club at just £3 million six years ago. He has largely been extremely dependable, and also a leader in the dressing room.
Wolves can certainly upgrade on him, but that doesn’t mean he would not still be missed.
