The Italian U21 international has struggled to lay down a first team place at Liverpool since his £10million move from Roma last summer.
Borini has picked up numerous injuries and looks to have fallen down the pecking order in the Reds attacking options this summer following the arrival of Iago Aspas, Luis Alberto and, this morning, Victor Moses.
Borini has made 20 appearances for Liverpool’s first team, scoring twice.
Sunderland have completed a deadline-day season-long loan deal for @LFC forward Fabio Borini.
