Report - Stoke City could revitalise move for Oussama Assaidi

The move originally broke down over personal terms, but it could be back on!

Liverpool winger Oussama Assaidi may well be moving to Stoke City after all according to the Daily Mirror.

The Moroccan winger had a relatively successful spell on loan at the Britannia Stadium last season and manager Mark Hughes wanted to make the move permanent this summer.

However, it appeared the move broke down over personal terms, and the Potters' subsequent signing of Victor Moses on a season-long loan from Chelsea seemed to end any prospect of that move taking place. 

But Assaidi's chances of first team football at Liverpool will be limited this season giving the summer signings of Lazar Markovic and Adam Lallana, combined with the impressive form of 19-year-old Raheem Sterling, and the Mirror are reporting that he's been told he has no future at Anfield. 

Stoke reportedly believe they can do a deal for £5 million if Assaidi lowers his wage demands. 

After he was signed from Heerenveen for a fee of £2.4 million, Assaidi was used sparingly in Europa League games and off the bench.

But with the Reds returning to the Champions League, manager Brendan Rodgers has been prepared to let him go as he brought in players he regarded as better quality.
