Liverpool, England – Liverpool has signed Morocco winger Oussama Assaidi from Dutch club Heerenveen on a long-term contract.

The deal was completed Friday with no transfer fee or length of contract disclosed.

Assaidi says “when I watch Liverpool it's always a good atmosphere, the fans are fantastic” and “it will be a dream to play with these big players.”

The 24-year-old Assaidi has played 22 times for Morocco and scored 20 goals in 68 games for Heerenveen. He's the third signing by coach Brendan Rodgers, joining Fabio Borini and Joe Allen as new recruits.

Rodgers says “he's a young player who has done very well, in particular in the last couple of seasons” and “he fits our style perfectly - he's an exciting player who is very good in one versus one situations.” – Sapa-AP
