Liverpool striker Fabio Borini has completed a move to Sunderland on a season-long loan.

Fellow Italian and Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio is known to rate Borini highly, although the Italian striker has scored just two goals in 20 appearances for Liverpool.

Borini was Brendan Rodgers' first signing at the club after working together in their time at Swansea, although now he has been allowed to leave the club on loan in search of regular first-team football.

Borini moved from Roma for £11 million in July 2012, yet after Liverpool's deadline day signing of Victor Moses from Chelsea, Borini has been pushed even further down the pecking order for the Reds.

Borini has been capped once for Italy, against USA in February 2012.

A temporary move suits both parties, with Sunderland looking to increase their firepower having been boosted by the return of Steven Fletcher, who made a goalscoring comeback in the defeat at Crystal Palace on Sunday following a five-month layoff with injury.
