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

Assaidi scored 20 goals in 68 appearances for the Dutch first division side last season.

He is new Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers' third signing since he took charge at Anfield following Swansea City midfielder Joe Allen and Italian striker Fabio Borini from AS Roma.

Liverpool begin the new Premier League season at West Bromich Albion on Saturday.
