26-Year-Old Forward Stoke City Premier
Assaidi (knee) has been a full participant during training this week, the Stoke Sentinel reports.
Assaidi missed pre-season action due to a knee problem that lingered from last season, so Stoke is rightfully being careful and gradually building the Moroccan's fitness at the moment. That being said, Assaidi is still expected to be named to Stoke's reserves for this Saturday's match versus Leicester City. Currently on his second-loan spell with the Potters from Liverpool, Assaidi will look to improve on the four goals in 19 appearances he totaled for Mark Hughes' side last term.
