Journalist Joe Edwards says that he would be stunned if Wolves do not decide to extend the contract of defender Romain Saiss at the end of the season.
The 30-year-old Moroccan is out of contract at the end of the season, but given his displays this season, currently ranked 2nd in the team on WhoScored.com, and being awarded Man of the Match in their recent defeat against Manchester United, Edwards believes that he has done enough to get himself a new deal before it runs out.
And speaking on the E&S Wolves Podcast (11:38), Edwards even went so far as to say that he would be stunned if his performances aren’t considered enough for the club to make him an offer, and that really it would be down to the defender himself to turn something down:
“One of the things to come out of that is Saiss’ out of contract at the end of the season and Wolves have the option to extend it for another year I’d be flabbergasted if they don’t… unless there’s something that Saiss you know, kind of says to the club I want to go elsewhere but I can’t really see that”
Does Saiss deserve a new contract at Wolves?
Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo has said in the past that he relies on having a strong core in his side in order to progress, and that philosophy has certainly helped him so far as he has taken the Molineux outfit forward these past few years, and someone like Saiss, who has been at the club since 2016 is absolutely a part of that.
So if the manager and the club want to keep the club where they are and potentially move forward as well, then they would be wise to get this done as soon as possible, especially now that he’s going into the final six months and clubs from abroad can start to make approaches for him.
Best to give people peace of mind rather than drag something like this out until the very last minute.
