Borini, who has played for Chelsea, Liverpool and Sunderland as well as Roma, is the second striker to be signed by the resurgent Serie A giants this close season following the capture of Andre Silva from Porto on a five-year deal two weeks ago.

"AC Milan has acquired Fabio Borini from Sunderland on loan. The contract stipulates the obligation to purchase the Italian striker outright," said a statement by AC Milan.

AC Milan, the seven-time European champions who were recently sold by long-time owner Silvio Berlusconi to a Chinese consortium, finished sixth in Serie A last season to secure a place in next season's Europa League.
