Fabio Borini must really enjoy weekend shopping with the wife, as chances are he is going to have a lot of spare time on his hands over the coming months after pricing himself out of moves to QPR and Sunderland.
Between now and the reopening of the transfer window in January, the Italian striker's chances of playing first-team football appear to be slim and none. Unlike other fringe players at Anfield such as Suso and Lucas Leiva, however, Borini's situation is one entirely of his own choosing.
Liverpool striker Fabio Borini has declared himself "very happy" to stay at Anfield after a deadline-day transfer to QPR collapsed.
Borini looked set to move to Loftus Road on Monday when the two clubs agreed a deal for an initial fee of 10 million pounds.
But the proposed move fell through, with QPR manager Harry Redknapp telling various media outlets that the striker's wage demands were too high.
