Stoke City manager Mark Hughes is keen to agree a permanent deal for Oussama Assaidi when the transfer window reopens, according to the Express.
The midfielder moved to the Britannia Stadium on loan from Liverpool back in August, after making just four substitute appearances for the Reds during his debut season in England.
However, the 25 year old has featured in half of the Potters top-flight matches this season, scoring three goals – the first of which a memorable last minute winner against Chelsea back in December.
Hughes will attempt to secure the Morocco international’s services on a permanent basis in the summer, though he is likely to face competition for his signature should Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers decide to sell.
Stoke currently sit tenth in the Premier League table, and are looking for their first top half finish since they won promotion under former manager Tony Pulis six years ago.
