Stoke move for Assaidi stalling over wage demands

Stoke City’s attempts to sign Liverpool winger Oussama Assaidi have stalled in recent days due to the player’s high wage demands, according to the Daily Express.

Negotiations between the two parties have been going on for a week, and Stoke have now decided that they may turn their attentions to securing other targets should a deal not be agreed over the coming days. The Potters have already seen a bid of £4.5m accepted by Liverpool, although that could eventually rise to £7m.

Assaidi spent last season on loan at the Britannia Stadium after struggling to gain first-team football at Liverpool, where he was only used sporadically in the cup competitions. He made a good impact at Stoke and scored five goals in 25 league appearances, including a late winner from long-range against Chelsea in December.

Manager Mark Hughes is determined to bring the Moroccan back to the East Midlands, while he is also eyeing a move for Norwich City winger Nathan Redmond. The former Birmingham youngster suffered relegation with the Canaries last season and could be tempted by the chance to return to the Premier League.
