Former Wolves defender Romain Saiss could be making a return to the Premier League this summer.

The 33-year-old has just finished his first season with Besiktas.

But it appears he may not be staying, with Foot Mercato reporting he is ‘tired of the instability of the Turkish club’.

He is ‘greatly open to a departure’, and he could now head back to the Premier League.

Wolves let Saiss go last summer, with club and player unable to reach an agreement on an extension.

It was thought that Bruno Lage wanted to keep Saiss. But the Morocco international stated months after leaving that the offer the club made to him was disrespectful in his view. He said: “From what the coach told me to what they wanted to give me… it was just disrespectful for me. And I’m not talk about numbers, I’m not talking about money.”

Romain Saiss could now make Premier League return with Nottingham Forest and Everton keen

According to Foot Mercato, Nottingham Forest and Everton both now have interest in Saiss.

The star also has interest from Gulf countries. He has apparently already rejected some offers.

Is is stated that interest in Saiss really picked up following a string of fine performances he put in at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Saiss was absolutely rock solid for Morocco as they became the tournament’s surprise package, reaching the semi-finals.

Saiss is now ready to hear offers, and he would consider a move back to the Premier League.

So Forest and Everton like Saiss.

It will be interesting to see if one of those sides can complete a deal. Forest obviously already boast two former Wolves players in Willy Boly and Morgan Gibbs-White, which might give them an edge.

Some Wolves fans were really gutted that Saiss did not stay at Wolves last summer.

He was never the best defender from a technical standpoint. And he could be partial to a mistake.

But Saiss always gave his all for Wolves, and played with heart.

He was something of a cult hero at the club, and Wolves did actually miss him and his leadership in the first half of the 2022/23 season.

Whoever lands him will certainly be getting a warrior. That was very clear from watching him try to play through injury at the World Cup.
