Oussama Assaidi: Is unsure where his future lies

The Morocco international joined the Potters in August for the remainder of the season and has impressed at the Britannia Stadium - netting his fourth goal of the campaign in the 1-1 draw with Everton on New Year's Day.

"I don't know what is going to happen with me," Assaidi said when asked about his plans for the future. "Sometimes (Liverpool manager) Brendan Rodgers texts me, but I don't know.

"I am very happy here, because (Stoke manager) Mark Hughes has made me better, giving me a lot of confidence and letting me do my job the way I want to.

"Everyone at the club seems to like me. We will see at the end of the year what happens.

"He (Rodgers) texts me sometimes if I score, saying 'well done', 'keep going' and 'I am hearing good things about you'. But I love to play here for Stoke because they have given me a chance."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
