Sunderland are moving for Liverpool striker Fabio Borini.

The People says the Italian had a hard time with the Anfield giants last season - his first in English football - and will be allowed to move on loan to recapture his form.

Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio, waiting to offload Stephane Sessegnon, hopes to speak to his fellow countryman on Sunday.

Borini wants first-team action but is aware that Kop boss Brendan Rodgers is closing in on a loan deal for Chelsea attacker Victor Moses.
