Liverpool winger Oussama Assaidi has admitted that he would consider making a permanent move to Stoke City in the summer.

Brendan Rodgers allowed the 25-year-old to join the Potters on a season-long loan last summer. The Moroccan international has been in good form for Mark Hughes' side and has managed four goals from 19 league appearances.

The Potters are considering making the winger's move permanent at the end of the season.

Assaidi still remains uncertain over his future at Anfield. The winger has opened the door to join Stoke on a permanent transfer if he is not included in the former Swansea manager's plans at Liverpool for the next season.

"I don't know what I can say about it because I'm still under contract at Liverpool and I have to go back, but I'm very happy, we'll see what happens," Sky Sports quoted Assaidi as saying.

"We will see what Liverpool say. If they say there's no chance to play there then Stoke is a good option. I don't know yet what my future is, but I say always that I'm very happy at Stoke. The manager believes in me, that's what I need."

"He started me against Fulham and I'm very happy I scored and got man of the match as well because if you don't play for seven weeks that's very nice."

"I didn't hear the fans singing 'sign him up' but that's nice that they believe in me and I'm very happy that the fans were singing that," he added.

Assaidi has already made his intentions of not wanting to spend time on Liverpool's bench clear, if Rodgers decides to keep the winger at Anfield.

"I still have a contract with Liverpool and I hope the boss [Rodgers] gives me a chance. If not, I do not want to sit on the bench because I want to play games so you never know what can happen in the future," Assaidi told Stoke's official website in April.

"I really don't know. I'm unsure what Stoke or Liverpool wants. I am really happy to play for Stoke and I am happy they gave me a chance to play regularly."

"I get on well with my teammates and I'm very happy playing for the manager here. The club is good for me and my time here has been a good one," he said.
