Liverpool have completed the signing of Morocco international Oussama Assaidi from Dutch side Heerenveen.

The 24-year-old winger has signed a long-term deal having passed a medical at the club's Melwood training ground on Friday.

He becomes new manager Brendan Rodgers' third signing, following Fabio Borini and Joe Allen to Anfield.

"I'm very happy to play for this big club," he told


"The first time I spoke to the coach I had a good feeling. I had offers from other big clubs but I've been waiting for this moment.

"It will be a dream to play with these big players and I hope training will help me to be a good player here."
