The Italy international has battled multiple setbacks since signing from Roma last summer, suffering a broken foot at the beginning of the campaign and a dislocated shoulder shortly after his return.

The 22-year-old has managed just nine Premier League appearances for Liverpool this season and has not hit the back of the net in the top flight.

Despite struggling to make his mark, Borini has denied speculation over a possible move, claiming he wants to prove his worth in the run up to the World Cup in Brazil next summer.

"It's been a difficult season due to some unfortunate injuries, but these things happen and you can only accept them," Borini told Rete Sport.

"This is not a totally wasted season, I hope to be helpful in these remaining four games and the 2014 World Cup is a big goal for me.

"In regards to my future, I'm not really thinking about next year, but I will stay at Liverpool because I have yet to prove that I can compete here."

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
