Fabio Borini has scored six goals since joining Swansea City on loan

Swansea City loan striker Fabio Borini insists he will not make a decision on his future until after Monday's Championship play-off final.

The Italian under-21 international will leave Premier League giants Chelsea when his contract expires this summer.

Borini has impressed in his six-goal loan spell at Swansea, but has also attracted attention in his native Italy as Parma hope to sign the 20-year-old.

But Borini said: "I will look at my future after the final."

He is set to play a key role for Swansea in their play-off final clash with Reading at Wembley on Monday.

Brendan Rodgers worked with Borini when the Swans boss was part of Jose Mourinho's Chelsea backroom staff before he left Stamford Bridge in November 2008.

Borini played just four games for Chelsea in his two-year stay in west London so his 12-game stay at Swansea has been his first taste of regular first-team football.

Rodgers hopes to persuade Borini, also a friend of Swansea's former Chelsea winger Scott Sinclair, to make his loan stay at Swansea permanently.

But Parma president Tommaso Ghirardi has also said he is confident of securing Borini's signing this summer.

"I won't go back to Chelsea as my contract has expired," confirmed Borini.

"My future is now the final at Wembley and that is the only future that counts for me."

Borini's work rate has impressed since he joined the Swans on loan in March and his work-rate has impressed.

"I feel quite at home in Swansea," Borini continued.

"It is not like life in London, but it is a good life, a life that allows me to concentrate on my football.

"And Brendan is a great person and great manager who knows me very well."
