Wolves will extend the contract of versatile defender Romain Saiss due to a clause in his current deal related to the number of games played, according to reports.
Express and Star have reported about Saiss’ situation, stating that the number of matches he has started this season has triggered a contract extension for the defender.
Does Saiss deserve a new contract?
Saiss set to extend for 12 months
The report from Express and Star has revealed that Saiss has earned a new 12-month deal, as his current contract was set to run out in the summer.
He is now set to be a valuable member of the club’s first-team squad next season and the 30-year-old will also be one of Wolves’ longest-serving players as only Conor Coady has been at the club longer than the Moroccan. Saiss is valued at £9m right now.
In the current season, Saiss has made 23 appearances in all competitions. He has also scored two goals, scoring against Tottenham and Brighton (as per Transfermarkt).
Saiss deserves a new contract
In the current campaign, Saiss has picked up a rating of 6.88 for Nuno’s side – only three players have picked up better ratings than him (as per Whoscored).
It shows his consistency as a defender and the fact that he has been regular contributor to the side, due in no small part to his ability to play at centre-back, left-back or even in midfield. Whether he continues to play a major role or just offers depth next season, there is no doubt the club will benefit from keeping him around.
