Report: Romain Saiss more likely to leave Wolves than sign extension

Romain Saiss is reportedly now more likely to leave Wolves than sign a contract extension.

The defender is one of four players currently standing to depart Molineux at the end of the current campaign – the others being John Ruddy, Joao Moutinho and Fernando Marcal.

The 32-year-old’s future has been the subject of speculation for weeks now.

Supposedly, there has been a contract offer on the table from Wolves.

Wanderers would like him to extend his stay, which is no surprise given how much Bruno Lage has used him this season.

The manager has really taken to the Morocco international, and branded him ‘a very important player’ before he headed to AFCON earlier this year. He also called him ‘a leader’.

But according to The Athletic, it now seems ‘more likely’ that Saiss will be moving on to pastures new this summer.

And he potentially won’t be short of options.

There were claims recently that as many as seven clubs were circling.

They have clearly been impressed by Saiss this season. Certainly before he went to AFCON, the star was absolutely superb for Wanderers and had helped the club to become one of the most solid teams in Europe.

His level has dipped a bit since he came back, and he has actually struggled a bit during Wolves’ current four-game winless run.

He is currently not in particularly good form.

He shouldn’t be a starter next term, but he could still be a rotation option.

But it seems the player might be ready to move, six years since his arrival at the club
