Black Cats Sign Borini, Lose Sessegnon

Liverpool have confirmed that striker Fabio Borini has moved to Sunderland on loan for the 2013/14 season.

The Italian has found game time hard to come by after an overhaul this summer and the deadline day signing of Victor Moses from Chelsea increased the competition even more.

A statement on the club's official website read, "Liverpool Football Club has confirmed that Italian forward Fabio Borini has joined Barclays Premier League side Sunderland on loan for the duration of the 2013-14 campaign.

"The 22-year-old joins the Black Cats, who are managed by Paolo Di Canio and currently sit 19th in the league standings, on a season-long deal.

"Borini was Brendan Rodgers' first signing as Liverpool boss after completing a transfer from Serie A outfit Roma in July 2012.

"The No.29 has since made 20 appearances for the Reds, notching two goals in the process."

The Black Cats also announced the signing of defender Andrea Dossena on a one-year deal, stating, "Left-back Andrea Dossena has become Sunderland’s second signing of transfer deadline day.

"The Italian, who joins countryman Fabio Borini at the Stadium of Light, has arrived from Napoli on a one-year deal.

"Dossena, 31, made 24 appearances for Napoli last season as the Italian side secured a second-place finish in Serie A."

The double swoop came with the news that West Brom had made a record move for Stephane Sessegnon, with the 29-year-old penning a three-year deal at the Baggies.
