Oussama Assaidi has revealed to Anderlecht's manager that he would like to join the club this summer after Brendan Rodgers informed the winger he is allowed to leave Liverpool.

Assaidi made the move to Merseyside last summer with Rodgers insisting the 24 year old would play a major role for the club in his first season in charge.

But as Suso and Raheem Sterling both made breakthroughs into the first team it appears that there is no place for the Morocco international in the Liverpool first team.

Anderlecht manager John van den Brom says that he hopes that the clubs can come to an agreement for the permanent transfer of Assaidi, who is hoping to make a move this summer in orderto gain more regular game time.

"I have spoken to Oussama and he favours a move here," he said, according to Metro. "We are talking to Liverpool, it is now up to the club."

Assaidi made 12 appearances for Liverpool last season, with only four of those coming in the Premier League.

Rodgers had reportedly been hoping to recoup the £2.4m he paid for Assaidi last summer but a number of loan deals were also being discussed with Feyenoord and Anderlecht.

But the Dutch club believe that they can in fact afford the former Heerenveen star, who struggled to make an impact in his limited number of appearances.

Assaidi is one of a few players whom Rodgers has pointed out for possible exits this summer, with Jonjo Shelvey already leaving to join Swansea and Daniel Pacheco and Jay Spearing also looking set to leave as the manager looks to trim his wage bill.
