SUNDERLAND boss Gus Poyet is hoping to have an answer soon as to whether Liverpool striker Fabio Borini – his main transfer target – will join the club.
The Italian is said to have turned down a permanent move to Wearside but Poyet has not given up on his man just yet.
“I think we’re getting close to a final decision either way because it’s been a bit too long,” said the Black Cats boss.
“It’s time now that it’s a yes coming or a no as we need to move on.”
