The defender wrote on Instagram, “The moment I feared the most has arrived… the moment to say goodbye to you.”
“It was an honour and a privilege to wear these colours and to contribute to the success and renewal of this club.
“Thank you to all the players that I consider as a family. I’ll be a wolf forever.”
“A man who never gave anything less than 100 percent in gold & black. A warrior on the pitch and an entertainer off it.
For everything you have helped us achieve over the last six years, thank you Romain,” Wolves said in a statement on Twitter.
The 32-year-old joined Wolves from Angers in 2016 and appeared in 181 games.
Saiss is currently in Morocco’s squad for a friendly against the United States on Wednesday, before the Atlas Lions begin their 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against South Africa and Liberia on June 9 and 13, respectively.
Saïss began his career with Valence, then played for Le Havre and Clermont of Ligue 2, and Angers of Ligue 1 before joining Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2016.
A full international since 2012, Saïss has earned over 50 caps for Morocco. He represented the nation at three Africa Cup of Nations tournaments, and the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
On 30 August 2016, Saïss moved to England, joining Championship club Wolverhampton Wanderers for an undisclosed fee on a four-year deal. He made his debut on 17 September in a 2–0 win at Newcastle United. In the game, he was subjected to racial abuse by opponent Jonjo Shelvey, who was given a five-match ban and £100,000 fine by The FA in December.
On 31 May 2022, Saïss announced that he would leave Wolves at the end of his contract on 1 July, having played 206 games for the club over six seasons, and scoring 15 goals, nine of them in the Premier League.
