Jermaine Pennant is hoping his loan move to Stoke leads to a permanent transfer back to the Barclays Premier League.
"I've missed the Premier League," he told Sky Sports News.
"I've also missed having a team meet and understanding the instructions I'm getting.
"I'm just going to play the best I can and see what happens.
"My first mission is to help Stoke climb the table. If in January I can get a permanent move, great.
"The gaffer said he's hoping for a top-10 finish. He believes it and we believe it too."
"Liverpool's always going to be a massive club," he said. "Last season was very disappointing for them.
"Roy's got a lot of players in. I'm sure they can go for the title and definitely finish in the top four."
