Romain Saiss was supposed to face Guinea in a World Cup qualifier yesterday.

But the decision was made to postpone the game after a military coup took place.

Saiss has returned to Morocco with the rest of his international teammates following reports of ‘hours of heavy gunfire’ from the BBC.

The Express and Star have now provided an update on Saiss.

They say that he should return to England within 24 hours and should be in line to face Watford on Saturday.


If he’s had both doses of the vaccine, he won’t need to isolate at all because he’s coming back from an amber country.

If he hasn’t, Wolves can apparently pay to get him a test to release, leaving him free to play provided he tests negative.

Saiss has played all of Wolves’ league matches so far, and his availability would be a boost for Bruno Lage because of that.

But Willy Boly and Yerson Mosquera are back playing now and nearing full fitness.

That means that Saiss might have to fight for his place, and if he does test positive, Lage would be better equipped to cover for that than he was before the international break.
