Fabio Borini leaves Sunderland for AC Milan

Sunderland striker Fabio Borini has joined AC Milan, the Serie A club have announced.

The Italian giants have signed the 26-year-old on loan initially ahead of a permanent move.

A statement from the club read: "AC Milan announce the signing of Fabio Borini from Sunderland AFC. The contract implies the player will join the club on loan with obligation to buy."

Borini joined Sunderland from Liverpool in 2015, having earlier spent a successful loan spell with the Black Cats.

However, he failed to live up to expectations in his two seasons since his permanent move and scored just once last season as Sunderland were relegated from the Premier League.

He scored the goal which put Sunderland ahead in the 2014 League Cup final against Manchester City, but the Wearsiders went on to lose the game 3-1.

Borini is the second striker Milan have signed this summer following Portugal international Andre Silva.
