Fabio Borini Joins Sunderland from Liverpool

Sunderland have pulled a transfer coup to land Liverpool forward Fabio Borini.

The Black Cats have agreed to pay a fee that could rise to £10m – plus add-ons – to the Merseyside outfit, beating off interests from Inter Milan, Fiorentina and Watford.

Borini, 24, was at the Stadium of Light during the 2013-14 campaign, scoring seven goals in 32 matches but then turned down a permanent move to the club.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers made Borini his first signing in July 2012 in a deal worth £11m.

The Italy international scored three goals in 38 appearances for the Reds.
