FABIO Borini has revealed his relief at the closure of the transfer window after moves to Sunderland and Queens Park Rangers failed to materialise.
Sunderland had a £14m bid accepted by Liverpool for the forward in July after he spent a successful loan spell at the Stadium of Light last season.
QPR were successful with a £13m offer yesterday, but the move did not go through, reportedly due to the Italian’s wage demands.
Borini will now stay at Anfield and fight for his place, and insisted it was his decision to stay put.
He tweeted: “Finally the madness is finished!
“I protected the MAN and the player that I am today taking all the responsibility of the situation and for people who didn’t want it, and I’m VERY happy with myself to have taken such an important decision!”
