Agent: Sunderland Want To Keep Loanee "At All Costs"

An agent wouldn't lie... would he?

Alex Livesey

The agent of Fabio Borini has insisted that Sunderland are desperate to keep the on-loan Liverpool forward at the club and are willing to break the bank to do it.

He told Tutto Mercato Web:

Sunderland love Fabio after what he has done for them this season. They want him at all costs.

Call me a cynic if you want, but the more agents talk during transfer windows the less I tend to listen! I don't question that Sunderland do indeed want to keep Borini - in fact neither Gus Poyet or Charlie Oatway have made a secret of it - but I don't personally believe the 'at all costs' bit. That just sounds like agent-speak for me. Promoting their clients is their job and only ever motivation in the press.

It's going to be a long old summer of this sort of stuff.
