Sunderland boss Poyet hopes to convince Borini to stay

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet wants to keep hold of Fabio Borini.

Borini, on-loan at Liverpool, has been touted to Serie A clubs by his agent this week.

Poyet said: "I would like to talk to him, not agents. He is a very important player for us and he has been unlucky because, if there is one player who should have got a bit more from the manager, it is Fabio.

"I've only been here a month and a half so not everything needs to be decided now.

"If I was him I'd be moaning, but he has got great character and we have got a very good relationship.

"Every player wants to play all the time and I'm sure his family are thinking, why doesn't he manager play him? He has done well and is probably the one who has been really unlucky with the situation in games."
