Bolton Wanderers manager Gary Megson has allowed Swiss midfielder Blerim Dzemaili to join Italian side Torino on a one-year loan deal.
The 22-year-old moved to the Reebok Stadium last summer but has struggled to break in to Megson's first-team plans.
He has made only one substitute appearance for the club - in last season's FA Cup third round defeat to Sheffield United.
Dzemaili has struggled since being sidelined with a knee ligament injury and was linked with moves to Fulham and Hertha Berlin in January.
Megson had said in February: "I can understand his frustrations but I will always do what's best for Bolton rather than the individuals.
"He needs to knuckle down here and show what he can do."
