Slovakian winger Vladimir Weiss has completed a transfer to Serie A side Pescara from reigning Premier League champions Manchester City for an undisclosed fee.
The winger has put pen to paper on a one-year deal with the option to extend the contract for a further year if he can impress with his performances on the pitch this season.
Weiss leaves Manchester City after a three-year stay with the Citizens during which he represented the English side five times. The youngster signed for the Manchester club in 2009, but found first-team opportunities limited upon his arrival and his only appearance in the Premier League was as a substitute in the final game of the 2008/09 season.
The 22-year-old continued to struggle to make a breakthrough into the first-team and after not making a single appearance in the Premier League at the beginning of the 2009/10 season, was loaned out to Bolton Wanderers in January in order to gain crucial game time.
Weiss, who signed a contract extension in December 2009, has now been allowed to leave Manchester City after three loan spells.
The player joins Pescara, a side who have just gained promotion to Serie A by virtue of winning Serie B. The Slovakian international will be hoping that he can contribute to helping the side maintain their top flight status this season.
