Stoke City in "tentative" talks with Liverpool over Oussama Assaidi

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes reveals that the club are in "tentative" talks with Liverpool over turning Oussama Assaidi's loan deal into a permanent one.

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has revealed that the club have made enquiries to Liverpool about permanently signing winger Oussama Assaidi.

The 25-year-old, who has scored four goals in 24 appearances, moved to the Britannia Stadium last summer for a season-long loan.

"We like Ossie and if we could come to an arrangement with Liverpool we would like to bring him here," Hughes said in Friday's press conference.

"He's a valuable player and I think Liverpool recognise that. I think there's been tentative enquiries but nothing concrete yet. He's done really well here. It's certainly helped him and Ossie's certainly helped us."

Assaidi made just four league starts for Liverpool during his first season at Anfield after joining from Heerenveen.
