Liverpool flop Fabio Borini is reportedly on the verge of completing a surprise £10m move to Sunderland ahead of the deadline.
The Italian has been linked with an exit from Anfield for some time, with Brendan Rodgers seemingly making it clear that he has no future at the club.

Liverpool signed both Roberto Firmino and Christian Benteke this summer, and so Borini would have undoubtedly fallen further down the pecking order.
While Rodgers has already successfully gotten rid of one striker in Mario Balotelli who joined Milan on loan, Borini is next in line as reports from Sky Sports claim a £10m move has been agreed with Sunderland.
It is suggested that the initial fee is £7m with the fee rising a further £3m in bonuses, and it reunites the striker with the club after he previously spent a loan spell at the Stadium of Light.
The fee will undoubtedly come as a shock to some considering that Borini has been unable to live up to expectations particularly on Merseyside, while Dick Advocaat is seemingly desperate to improve his squad at this late stage of the transfer window.
