Oussama Assaidi’s official signed for Stoke City, after a successful one year loan spell arriving at the club, and especially in “the last minutes” of the summer mercato.
The Potters announced in their website that they have finally finalized the deal with the player.
Mark Hughes, Stoke City’s coach, has made of the deal a necessity right after Peter Odemwingie picked up a knee injury during the club’s 1-0 win over Manchester City at the weekend
Stoke’s Chief Executive Tony Scholes said: “We thought we had concluded our incoming transfer business for this transfer window but we re-evaluated our plans after losing Peter to injury for the foreseeable future.”
Mark Hughes added: “It’s unfortunate that we look like being without Peter for a while but following his setback we felt it was important that we moved to bolster the resources at our disposal.
“It’s clear from talking to Oussama that he really enjoyed his time with us last season and he’s looking forward to picking up where he left off with us.”
“Assaidi made 19 Premier League appearances for the Potters last season and also scored against Newcastle and Everton and in a Capital One Cup tie against Birmingham,” Stoke official website reported.
“The former Heerenveen man will report for training at Clayton Wood on Wednesday when the Potters’ first team squad report back for training after a few days off following their stunning victory at the Etihad,” the source closed.
