Borini, who enjoyed a successful season-long loan at Sunderland last term, is set to move for a fee believed to be around £14million with the decision now resting with the 23-year-old.

The Italy international scored 10 goals for the Wearside club and is reportedly keen to return to the north-east to continue his development under Gus Poyet.

But Liverpool did pick Borini to start Saturday's pre-season friendly against Preston at Deepdale.

Borini, who was Brendan Rodgers’ first signing after joining as Liverpool manager, scored just two goals in 20 appearances during an injury-plagued first year at Anfield.

The former Chelsea youth was signed from Parma in the summer of 2012, having impressed the previous season during a loan stint at Roma, where he scored nine goals in 24 appearances.

Borini made his Italy debut – which remains his only cap to date – in February 2012.

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
