Stoke City have agreed to take Liverpool winger Oussama Assaidi on a season-long loan, according to Sky Sports.
The Morocco international will join The Potters on a season-long loan after completing a medical at Clayton Wood.
The 25-year-old only joined Liverpool last summer for £2.4million from Dutch club Heerenveen.
The winger made his Liverpool debut against Young Boys SC in the Europa League last September, but failed to break into the manager’s first-team plans, making just 12 appearances for the Reds.
Assaidi has been linked with a host of clubs this transfer window as well as Mark Hughes' old club Queens Park Rangers, but it seems the Stoke boss has got one over on his former team, beating them to his signature.
Stoke assistant boss Mark Bowen told Sky Sports: "Assaidi is one that we like very much. He is here now talking with our medical staff and hopefully we can get that one over the line.
"He is a very good footballer, who has a lot of pace and is very technically gifted too.
"At this moment he is a Liverpool player though, so I don't want to talk too much about him."
Assaidi will be Hughes' third summer signing following Erik Pieters and Marc Munesia to the Potteries.
The winger's departure will make room for Victor Moses who the Reds are hoping to sign on loan from Chelsea.
