The 20-year-old midfielder joined Torino last year but in June he was linked to EPL clubs Everton, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Leicester City who were reportedly keen to sign him.
Garbett grew up in Wellington and made his senior debut for Western Suburbs.
After spells with Eastern Suburbs and Team Wellington, he joined Swedish club Falkenbergs FF.
He signed for Torino after impressing at the Tokyo Olympics, and he became a key part of the All Whites line-up during the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
