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.”

think Liverpool should start trying alternative therapy now, given that Sturridge's hips and knees are apparently unfathomable to modern medicine. Voodoo, acupuncture, healing oils, rolling in the snow after a hot bath, its all got to be worth a go now.
