Italian Serie A side Torino have loaned out Ghanaian forward Emmanuel Gyasi to Italian third-tier side Pisa to enable him acquire enough first team experience, can confirm. 

The 20-year-old signed a professional contract at the Stadio Olimpico di Torino last season but failed to break into the Torino first team squad.

And, in a bid to help him improve his form, Il Toro have sent him on loan to the Italian Serie C where they believe he will earn more playing time to help his progress.

Gyasi, who made Torino's bench four time last season, guided their Primavera side to TIM Cup success two seasons ago and was expected to be retained by manager Giampiero Ventura but has been farmed out.

Italy have been courting the prolific goal-getter to play for their U20 side and have made attempts in the past to acquire Italian passport for him.
