Promising PSG left-back Vimoj Muntu Wa Mungu will spend the remainder of the year on a loan spell at Serie A side Torino, with an option to make the move permanent next June.

Muntu Wa Mungu's football career started at the amateur level when he was only six years old and he decided to join French lower-league side FC Melun.

The youngster joined Paris Saint-Germain in 2018, where he initially entered the club's pre-academy program before eventually earning a spot in the senior academy.

In June 2022 the talented defender penned his first professional contract with PSG, marking a significant stride in his burgeoning career and turning pro just four years before joining the club.

Muntu Wa Mungu spent last season playing in the Championnat U19, where he donned the Paris Saint-Germain underage shirt. In 29 appearances he scored two goals and delivered eight assists. He also played UEFA Youth League games, where he featured seven times and contributed two assists.

Vimoj Muntu Wa Mungu will make a sizable jump in the quality of the opposition he'll face this season by going on loan to a side competing in Italy's top-flight division.

PSG and Torino reached an agreement for the potential permanent transfer of the youngster at the end of the loan, with a buyout clause attached to the loan that can be excuted in June 2024.
