Oussama Assaidi: Impressed during season-long loan at Stoke

Mark Hughes had been hoping to take the 25-year-old winger on a permanent deal this summer after seeing him impress during a season-long loan in 2013/14.

Discussions have reached deadlock, though, with neither side willing to relax their stance.

Liverpool have a fee in mind that they would like to bring in for a player snapped up from Heerenveen for £2.3million in 2012, but that asking price far exceeds what Stoke consider the Morocco international to be worth.

Chief executive Tony Scholes said in The Sentinel: “There’s been no movement on Oussama. 

“We’ve all said, Mark and the chairman (Peter Coates) have said, that he’s a player we like.

“He settled in here last year and did very well.

“Everything points to it being a good match for the club and the player but at the moment the prices we’re being quoted are just wrong.”

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
