Wolverhampton Wanderers fans have spotted Romain Saiss boarding a plane to Slovakia (via the club’s Twitter account), which hints at a potential return from injury.
With the Old Gold set to face Slovan Bratislava tonight in the Europa League, eagle-eyed Wolves fans spotted the 29-year-old Moroccan boarding the flight with the rest of the team.
Having missed his side’s 1-1 draw with Southampton after the international break, fans of the club were delighted to see the defensive midfielder in line for a possible return.
Although, Wolves are reportedly (as per Express & Star) sweating over the fitness of the player.

Saiss has also played a part in Wolves’ Europa League campaign so far this term, featuring once in the group stages and on six occasions over qualifying – with fans delighted to see his Europa League game time could be continuing.

What do we think?
As much as Wolves fans may love to see Saiss return to the pitch, it may be more beneficial to ease the Moroccan in with an appearance off the bench.
Aggravating any potential underlying injury by throwing the defensive midfielder into any unnecessary, mid-week Europa League action may take everything back to square one and could ultimately leave Wolves fans more disappointed with their player’s return to the pitch than a safer substitute appearance.
