On-loan Reds forward Fabio Borini has been named as Sunderland's Young Player of the Year...
Italian international Fabio Borini has been rewarded for an excellent individual campaign at Sunderland with the club's Young Player of the Year award.
The attacker picked up the accolade, voted for by official SAFC supporters clubs, at a special presentation event last night.
Borini, 23, has made 35 appearances for the struggling Black Cats this term and scored seven goals.
Many of his strikes have been crucial, including Saturday's late penalty at Chelsea, which ironically helped his parent club's title prospects, and a stunning effort against local rivals Newcastle United back in October.
Borini was also on the scoresheet at Wembley during the Capital One Cup final earlier this year but couldn't prevent the Wearsiders from eventually going down 3-1 to Manchester City.
Gus Poyet's side, who three days before ending Jose Mourinho's unbeaten home record as Blues boss also earned an impressive point at the Etihad, currently remain bottom of the Premier League but can now climb out of the relegation zone if they win their game in hand.
Borini, who signed for Liverpool from Roma in July 2012 for a fee of around £10million, is expected to return to Anfield in the summer once his temporary switch to the Stadium of Light ends.
Manager Brendan Rodgers will need a bigger squad to cope with a return to the Champions League next season and is believed to retain high hopes for a player he previously worked with at both Chelsea and Swansea City.
Borini's debut season on Merseyside was hampered by foot and shoulder injuries which restricted him to just 13 league appearances.
