'Very shrewd': Wolves fans react on Twitter to Romain Saiss report

Wolves fans celebrate winning the Emirates FA Cup Third Round match between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Liverpool at Molineux on January 7, 2019 in Wolverhampton, United Kingdom.

2014 La Liga champions Atletico Madrid reportedly want Saiss but he is staying in the Premier League with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Romain Saiss might have started just eight Premier League games this season but that does not mean he isn’t a valued member of Wolverhampton Wanderers’ squad.

The Moroccan international is not a supreme technician like Ruben Neves, he cannot unlock a defence like Morgan Gibbs-White and he doesn't put a set piece on a sixpence like Joao Moutinho.

But Saiss is a jack of all trades; a hard-working and combative central midfielder who seems to never have a bad game.

He has been superb whenever he's been called on this season, including in Sunday’s FA Cup fifth round win at Bristol City and the famous 2-1 triumph over Chelsea in December.

No wonder Wolves fans are thrilled to learn that Saiss is set to extend a contract that runs currently until 2020, as reported by the Telegraph.

This comes less than a week after Lions De L’Atlas claimed that La Liga giants Atletico Madrid were keen to take the former Angers enforcer to the Wanda Metropolitano in the summer.

The chance to work under Diego Simeone would turn anyone’s head but it seems no one wants to leave Wolves right now.
