The Italian forward spent the 2013/14 campaign with Sunderland after being deemed surplus to requirements at Anfield.

He impressed while at the Stadium of Light, helping Gus Poyet’s side to preserve their Premier League status, and returned to Merseyside over the summer determined to prove his worth.

That remains the case now that the window has closed, with Borini set to remain with Liverpool until at least January.

The 23-year-old claims to be happy with that situation, despite having missed out on a switch to a club where regular first team football may have been easier to come by.

Borini’s representative says Inter Milan were among those looking to reach a loan agreement but were knocked back.

Marco De Marchi has also claimed that the offer from Queens Park Rangers which was turned down was not suitable for ‘an important player’.

He told fcinternews.it: “The player still has two years on his contract with Liverpool and they decided not to consider offers for a loan.

“Inter Milan and other very important clubs in Europe wanted him on loan.

“Liverpool didn’t accept and then QPR made an offer to buy him immediately. But the proposal for the player was not a proposal for an important player.

“Now Fabio will stay with Liverpool and try to convince the coach to give him a chance. He is used to fighting for things.

 "He has proved he can play at a high level. He is still under contract with Liverpool for another two years and the club decided not to listen to offers for Fabio to go out on loan this season.

"QPR made an important offer to buy him straight away. But if you consider the player to be important and you make an important offer, then also the player should be treated as an important player.

"Now Fabio will remain at Liverpool and try to convince the coach to give him playing time.

"I remember that he was the first signing the Liverpool coach wanted when he (Rodgers) arrived at Liverpool.

"Fabio is in one of the most important clubs in the world and what will happen in the future we don't know."

“I don’t know what will happen in the January market.”

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

I

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
