Liverpool winger Oussama Assaidi’s loan with Stoke was curtailed by injury in February but the Morocco international is keen to return for valuable game time.

The 25-year-old winger is currently nursing knee ligament damage suffered while away on warm-weather training in February and is reluctant to rush his rehabilitation and risk suffering a setback.

Assaidi said on his injury in The Sentinel: “Charlie Adam went to shoot and I went to block the ball. My knee twisted, and when I went to stand up I felt the pain.

“It is going better now, but the latest scan showed it is not fully healed and will take some time.

“I have to be careful because I don’t want a bigger injury. I want to play, but I will have to see in the future. I am not ready.”

He is keeping all of his options open, though, and has refused to rule out a return to the Potteries on a permanent basis.

Assaidi added: “I don’t know yet what my situation is, but I like Stoke and am very happy to play here.”
