Liverpool winger Assaidi leaves for Dubai

Winger Oussama Assaidi has left Liverpool after two and-a-half years to join Dubai club Al-Ahli for a fee of £2.4m, the Daily Express has reported.

The Moroccan became one of Brendan Rodgers’ first signings as Liverpool boss in the summer of 2012, but rarely figured for the club, with most of his limited first-team opportunities coming in the Europa League. Overall, he made just 12 appearances for the Reds, playing only 77 minutes of Premier League football.

He went on to spend the whole of last season at Stoke City and occasionally showed flashes of quality, including a memorable winning goal to seal a 3-2 success over Chelsea in December 2013, one of five he scored for the club. The 26-year-old did enough to earn another temporary move to the Britannia Stadium this time around, but has been hampered by injury.

And the former Heerenveen man now moves to the United Arab Emirates, signing a three and-a-half year contract with Al-Ahli, who are currently the champions of their domestic league.
