The agent of Fabio Borini has revealed the forward is happy at Liverpool and is not considering a move away from Anfield.

The Italian international spent the last season on-loan at Sunderland and the Black Cats were keen on signing him on a permanent transfer earlier in the summer. Both clubs had agreed a fee for the sale of Borini, but he rejected a chance to make a permanent switch to the Stadium of Light.

The former AS Roma forward was also a deadline day target for Queens Park Rangers. However, the deal did not progress due to the Italian's high wage demands. Borini continued at Liverpool and has already featured for Brendan Rodgers' side in the Premier League and the Champions League.

The 23-year-old's agent Marco de Marchi claims Liverpool are only willing to let their player leave on a permanent transfer. However, Borini's representative says he is not finding another club as his client is happy at Anfield.

"At this moment I am certainly not going to look for another club, as the boy is happy to remain at Liverpool. Let's not forget he left a journey he already started at Roma in order to come to England," Sky Sports quoted De Marchi as saying.

"Borini is a top-level player, so consequently he has a contract with Liverpool and any club interested knows how to approach them. Liverpool have no intention of loaning him out, as they already proved in August."

"We know that and so do all the clubs who came looking for him in the last transfer session. The situation is exactly the same as it was in September, in the sense that he is very happy to be part of this important team," Borini's agent stressed.

Despite injuries to Daniel Sturridge and Mario Balotelli's poor form, Borini has made only three appearances in all competitions so far, which include only one start.

Borini is the fourth choice striker in the squad, behind Sturridge, Balotelli and Rickie Lambert. The Italian forward is aware that his first team appearances would be limited at Liverpool this season.
