Romain Saiss could leave Wolverhampton Wanderers in the next few weeks.
The Athletic have reported the 31-year-old is ‘likely’ to depart Molineux, as the club step up their pursuit of a new centre-half.
Saiss is one of the longest-serving players at the club, joining a month after Fosun bought Wolves back in 2016.
He has clocked up 174 appearances to date, and been a part of a very successful past few seasons.
But it seems his time in the Black Country might be coming to an end.
He saw his contract extended earlier this year after making a certain amount of starts in the Premier League.
He therefore has one year left at Molineux.
But Wolves are operating on a sell-to-buy policy, and Saiss is one of a few names mentioned.
Ideally the club would like to keep Ruben Neves and Adama Traore, which is something many fans will be able to get behind.
On social media, fans have been reacting to the claim about Saiss.
Many recognise everything he has done for the club, but some acknowledge it might now be the right time to move on:
If we get rid of Saiss I hope we are signing 3 cbs

A good Championship standard player- Not technically gifted but reasonably versatile. Can do a job, plug a gap, but not good enough to hold down a position outright and make it his own though. Shirked a few aerial battles too.
Seems like a good chap & he’s had a good ride.

I will always appreciate the job Saiss did for Wolves but it is time to move on and try and get a better level of CB tbh

Bad idea. Great utility player and one of the only naturally physical players in the squad. Hopefully the manager knows best!

No…. A great versatile player who always gives his all.

Good news but I’d hope it’s soon as now we don’t have Boly or Mosquera from the start. Saiss has been such a good signing for us, but the time maybe right to go. https://t.co/NaGlTQ3Qnn

That’s literally exactly what we need to do get rid of Saiss who isn’t exactly vital to this team and then bring in a top quality centre back. Also the neves and adama news is the best news we’ve had all summer
