Cape Town - Sunderland boss Gus Poyet has not given up hope on luring Liverpool striker Fabio Borini to the Stadium of Light.

The Mirror report that Liverpool striker Fabio Borini still tops Sunderland's transfer list.

Liverpool and Sunderland reportedly agreed a £14 million deal for Borini's transfer before the striker pulled the plug on the deal at the eleventh hour.

Gus Poyet will again try and convince Borini that his football career would be best served by making the move from Anfield to the Stadium of Light.

"I would love to." responded Poyet when asked he will make another bid for the Italian.

"It is difficult to explain [why he never signed]. It was a long summer and the things everyone knows, we agreed a price and we flew to America [for Liverpool's pre-season tour] and he didn't come.

"The bottom line is he is not with us. I am trying to concentrate on what we have got."

Borini spent last season on loan with Sunderland and played a key role in the Black Cats English Premiership survival with ten goals for Poyet's side.
