LIVERPOOL manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed Sunderland have agreed a fee to sign Fabio Borini – but there is still work to do on the deal.

News broke last night that Sunderland had agreed a deal of up to £14m for the striker, who spent last season on loan with the Black Cats.

Borini has yet to agree personal terms with Sunderland, however, and was included in Liverpool’s starting line-up for their friendly against Preston today.

Rodgers said: “He obviously spent a really successful period with Sunderland last season and they’re a fantastic club.

“They’ve offered to buy Fabio and that’s where we’re at.

“There’s an agreement between the clubs but nothing agreed with the player as of yet so he’s still very much a Liverpool player.”
