The Italy international forward is set to team up with compatriot Paolo Di Canio at the Stadium of Light after falling down Brendan Rodgers' pecking order at Anfield
Fabio Borini is set to join Sunderland on a loan after Liverpool confirm the capture of Victor Moses, Goal understands.
Anfield manager Brendan Rodgers will allow the Italian forward to leave when the deal to sign Moses on loan from Chelsea is completed.
Moses’ arrival will push Borini down the pecking order and the Italian is likely to get more opportunities at Sunderland under his countryman Paolo Di Canio.
The 22-year-old Italy international had an injury-plagued debut campaign at Anfield after moving from Roma in the summer of 2012 and has failed to establish in the first team.
Moses was in the stands at Anfield on Sunday to watch Liverpool beat Manchester United 1-0 as the Merseysiders closed in on completing his loan from Stamford Bridge.
