Liverpool have confirmed their winger Oussama Assaidi has left Anfield and completed his switch to Dubai-based outfit Al Ahli Club on a permanent transfer.

"Liverpool Football Club can confirm Oussama Assaidi has left on a permanent transfer to join Al Ahli Club," a statement on Liverpool's official website read.

The Moroccan international joined the Merseyside club in the summer of 2012 from Heerenveen. He failed to feature regularly for Brendan Rodgers' side and joined Stoke City on a season-long loan during the 2013/14 season.

Assaidi extended his loan stay at the Britannia Stadium, where he made only one league start for the Potters. Lack of playing time under Mark Hughes saw him end his loan spell in January and join Dubai's Al Ahli Club.

The winger admitted that he was frustrated with limited game time. Hughes says he was unable to feature him regularly and that forced him to end his loan spell at Stoke.

The 26-year-old made 12 appearances for Liverpool, while he made 40 appearances for Stoke City in all competitions during his 18-month loan spell with the Potters.
