On loan Sunderland striker Fabio Borini has insisted that his long term future still lies with Liverpool, talkSPORT reports.

The young Italian forward is spending the season on loan at the Stadium of Light and was the hero at the weekend as his wonder strike settled matters in the Northeast derby as they beat Newcastle United 2-1 to help ease they early season woes.

With that goal he equalled last season’s tally that he notched up at Anfield as a continuous string of injuries prevented him from making a meaningful impact following his £11m move from Roma the summer before.

The signing of Daniel Sturridge from Chelsea also forced the 22-year-old down the pecking order and Brendan Rodgers allowed him to head out on loan this summer in order to get a much needed run of first team football with the view of coming back and trying again.

And the Italian under-21 international has insisted that he is in no doubt over where his long term future lies.

“There has been a squad revolution there [at Liverpool] but the worst thing for me was getting injured when I was actually playing at the start of last season,” he told Rete Sport.

“I remain a Liverpool player, I’m on loan because there wasn’t space for me and after a year of injuries I needed to get my confidence back, to play some games.

“But my roots are still there.”
