Liverpool have confirmed Oussama Assaidi has joined Stoke City on a season-long loan after agreeing a deal on Tuesday.

The Morocco international was one of the first signings of Brendan Rodgers’ Anfield reign after arriving in a £2.4m deal from Heerenveen last summer.

The 24-year-old, who scored 22 goals in 93 appearances for the Dutch side, struggled to break into the Reds first-team in the 2012/13 term.

Assaidi featured in just four Premier League games, while racking up six Europa League appearances, failing to score his first Liverpool goal.

A Liverpool statement read: “Liverpool have confirmed Oussama Assaidi has joined Stoke City on a season-long loan.

“The Moroccan winger will spend 2013-14 with the Potters after penning the deal on Tuesday afternoon.

“Assaidi signed for Liverpool from Heerenveen in August 2012 and has made 12 appearances for the Reds.”

Assaidi becomes the fifth signing of Mark Hughes’ Stoke reign following the arrivals of Juan Agudelo, Marc Muniesa, Erik Peters and Maurice Edu.
