Swansea manager Brendan Rogers has admitted that Fabio Borini is set on moving to Italy, and the youngster isn’t open to negotiations.
Borini, who has been on loan at the club from Chelsea for the last three months, has been a star for Swansea, netting six goals in nine appearances and contributing to getting the club promoted to the Barclays Premier League.
But while the newly promoted club have attempted to keep Borini in England, the 20-year-old is set on moving back to Italy, and a deal is done with Serie A side Parma according to Rogers.
"We'll keep our eye on him and maybe he can play for Swansea again in the future," Rogers said of the Chelsea striker.
"Fabio goes to Parma for five years. They have given Fabio a very good contract.
"He's a very good player. He'd already signed before the final so it wasn't possible to have a rethink and stay with Swansea."
Chelsea have released the youngster on a free transfer, after he failed to impress at the Stamford Bridge club.
Rogers said that while he wanted to make a deal with Borini to stay, it was too late when the time came to negotiate.
"I sensed he was very quiet in training one day so I pulled him to one side and had a chat with him," Rodgers said of how he found out that the wonderkid was moving to Italy.
"It had played on his mind because he's been accepted so well.
"Long before we came in for him he'd already signed a pre-contract agreement with Parma, and as the love of his life here grew, that became more difficult.
"But he's an honest kid, he's written an lovely letter which will come out to the people, the supporters and the staff."
