Wolves midfielder Romain Saiss is on the verge of leaving the club to sign for Besiktas, according to reports from Turkey.

However, he found it difficult to break into Nuno Espirito Santo’s line-up last season, having started just 12 Premier League games following 37 starts in the promotion-winning 2017/18 Championship campaign.
The midfielder played for just nine minutes of Wolves’ first Premier League match of the season against Leicester last week but has featured in all four of their Europa League qualifying games so far and played the full 90 minutes of both legs of the third qualifying round win over FC Pyunik.
While he may not have been a regular presence in the starting line-up at Molineux in recent months, these Wolves fans were nonetheless aghast at the news of his likely departure:
Surely now's not a good time to be getting rid of players

What? I don't rate the guy but I think selling him is stupid we have a small squad and with extra games it could be dangerous!

That would be a big mistake, he’s not going to be a 1st team regular again but he’s an excellent squad player.

Huge mistake. Good player. And we don’t have enough players what so ever as it is. Poor transfer window
