The Italian has become a hit on Wearside since his temporary move from Anfield with two goals in the derby victories over Newcastle and the opening goal in the Capital One Cup final defeat against Manchester City.

Poyet seems determined to try and prise the 22-year-old away from the Reds and joked he would leave Borini out for the remainder of the season should he help 18th-placed Sunderland to safety in the next five games.

"If he makes us safe in the next five games, I won't play him in the next five," the Uruguayan told The Sun. "Then maybe everyone will forget about him. 'Fabio Borini? Oh yeah, rubbish'. So then we can buy him. I don't know if it's possible but it would be fantastic.

"As a manager, when you have a player on loan and you know him very well he's the next option to buy.

"You know when he's good, when he's bad, how he trains, if he complains. It's out of our hands but I can tell you we like him a lot and will try."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
