Poyet keen to keep Borini at Sunderland

Sunderland manager Gustavo Poyet has said that he would like to keep Fabio Borini at the Stadium of Light, should the club stay in the Premier League, reports the Daily Star.

Fabio Borini

The Italian striker is at Sunderland on a season-long loan from Liverpool, for whom he scored just one Premier League goal last season. He has impressed during his time in the North East, scoring six goals in 27 appearances, including the winner against arch rivals Newcastle United in October, and the opening goal in the Capital One Cup final against Manchester City.

The Black Cats’ Premier League status is, however, in serious doubt with the club 19th in the Premier League, just a point off the bottom with 10 games to go, and whether they stay up could be the deciding factor over a possible permanent move.

And with Borini unlikely to force his way past Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez in the Liverpool pecking order, Poyet is hoping that Borini will be able to move permanently to Wearside. He said: "Borini is an important player, and he will be important to us if we stay in the Premier League, and are able to keep him.

"He's the perfect character to have in a group of players these days - he's the perfect professional, always positive."
