Fabio Borini: Sunderland striker joins AC Milan on initial loan

Fabio Borini
Borini played 26 times for Sunderland last season

Sunderland striker Fabio Borini has joined Italian giants AC Milan on loan with a view to a permanent deal.

The 26-year-old, capped once by Italy in 2012, scored two goals in 26 appearances last season as Sunderland were relegated to the Championship.

The Black Cats signed Borini for £10m from Liverpool in 2015, following a loan spell during the 2013-14 season.

The former Swansea and Roma player made 93 appearances in total for Sunderland and scored 17 goals.

Milan, who finished sixth in Serie A last season, say they have an "obligation to buy" Borini after the loan spell.
