Wolves are looking to open talks with centre-back Romain Saiss regarding a new deal at Molineux, according to a recent update.
The Lowdown: Saiss a key man for Wolves
The 31-year-old has been an excellent servant for Wanderers since joining from Angers back in 2016, helping them return to the Premier League in the process.
Saiss has made a total of 194 appearances for Wolves, scoring 15 goals in that time and thriving in a back-three under Bruno Lage this season.
The Moroccan is currently on Africa Cup of Nations duty, but with his current deal at Molineux expiring at the end of the season, swift action is required regarding his future.

The Verdict: Makes total sense
Saiss has been a top player for Wolves and extending his stay at the club makes perfect sense, considering he should still have a number of years at the top.
Some may point to the fact that he is 31 but that can still be peak age for centre-backs, so a relatively long-term deal shouldn’t be seen as a risk, looking at the likes of Thiago Silva, who remains an excellent player at 37.
Saiss has been compared to Italian legend Paolo Maldini by Lage, which speaks volumes about his presence and experience in the side, and it would be a huge shame to lose him for free at this point in his career.
In other news, Wolves are reportedly willing to snub a move for one player. Find out who it is here.
