The Reds were hopeful of selling the Moroccan international on a permanent basis after agreeing a fee with the Potters earlier this summer, but personal negotiations pushed the deal back to a loan move.

It is understood that Liverpool will receive £1 million for the loan and Stoke will also pay Assaidi’s wages for the rest of the season.
