Liverpool Signs Oussama Assaidi

Liverpool have completed the signing of Oussama Assaidi from Dutch side SC Heerenveen.

Assaidi, 24, joins for around £3 million and passed a medical at Melwood before signing a long-term deal with the club. He scored 10 times in the Dutch League last season and Rodgers thinks he will become a crowd pleaser at Anfield.

“We’re delighted with the signing, he’s a young player who has done very well, in particular in the last couple of seasons, in Holland,” he said. “He fits our style perfectly, he’s an exciting player who is very good in one versus one situations and I think he’s a player that will excite the crowd.

“We’re not expecting too much too early, he needs time to adapt but we’re delighted he’s chosen to come here over a number of other clubs. As I said, I’ll look forward to helping his development and I hope he’ll become a very good part of this club.”
