Romain Saiss has committed his future to Wolves be agreeing a new deal until 2021.


The midfielder follows Conor Coady and Matt Doherty in signing news terms, having proved an important part of Nuno Espirito Santo’s squad once again this season.


The Moroccan international, who appeared in last year’s World Cup, is now in his third Molineux campaign, in which time he’s made more than 80 appearances.


The midfielder joined from Angers in 2016 and played an integral role in last season’s promotion to the Premier League, appearing regularly alongside Ruben Neves.


Since promotion, the 28-year-old has been patient for minutes, but has benefitted from his versatility, utilised in both defence and midfield in recent months.


On Boxing Day Saiss’ late equaliser earned Wolves a point against Fulham and the following month he opened the scoring in an impressive victory over West Ham United.


Last weekend he helped Wolves into their first FA Cup quarter final since 2003 and can look forward to to the future at Molineux.

(Reuters) - On-loan Southampton duo Guido Carrillo and Sofiane Boufal may still have a future at the club and will be given a chance to prove their worth when they return to St Mary’s at the end of the season, chairman Ralph Krueger has said.


Argentine striker Carrillo joined La Liga outfit Leganes on a season-long loan deal at the start of the season, while Moroccan midfielder Boufal was loaned to Celta Vigo.


Both players fell out of favour under former Southampton manager Mark Hughes, who has since been sacked and replaced by Austrian Ralph Hasenhuettl.


“Ralph’s going to take a look at them,” Krueger told fans recently. “There’s no 100 percent guarantee that they would be sold in the summer or not. They will come back, and we will re-evaluate them.


“Both players deserve that opportunity and when we feel the time is right to sell, we will sell.”


Carrillo has scored five goals for Leganes this season, while Boufal has struck two for Celta, who are a point and a place above the relegation zone in Spain.


Hasenhuettl has guided Southampton away from relegation trouble since taking over in December and the club are currently 15th in the table, with four wins and a draw in eight league matches under the Austrian.
