BBC Sport reporter Simon Stone has said Romain Saiss’ exit from Wolves will leave a ‘big gap’ to fill ahead of next season.
The Premier League club recently announced that the defender would be leaving this summer, having spent six years playing in the famous gold shirt.
In the club’s lengthy official post, they thanked him for his service and listed the ‘many memorable moments’ he had provided Wolves over the years.
No doubt reflecting upon this, Stone took to Twitter to express his concern about the player’s departure, writing: “A big gap in Wolves’ defence to fill.”
Do Wolves need to sign Romain Saiss replacement this summer?
TIF Thoughts on Romain Saiss and Wolves…
With that in mind, it is not hard to see why Stone feels as though he is a player who will leave a bit of a hole in the team ahead of the upcoming campaign.
Even in the most recent season, despite his contract situation, Bruno Lage still called upon Saiss on a regular basis, playing him 31 times in the league. His ability to play in defence or midfield was also a very useful tool in the past and will be another area where the club will now be weakened.
With the 32-year-old leaving, it will be interesting to see if the club will go out and find a direct replacement in the transfer market.
