Spanish La Liga side, Las Palmas have reached an agreement with suspended Black Stars player, Kevin-Prince Boateng with an official deal imminent. The ex-AC Milan will sign for one season with an option to extend.
24 hours after it was revealed that Las Palmas were in negotiations for Kevin-Prince Boateng, AS can confirm that an initial agreement has been reached between the LaLiga side and the player’s representatives.
The German-born Ghana midfielder and his agents will meet up over Friday and Saturday to study the contract that the Amarillos have sent to sign, and if everything is in agreement – as is expected – the player will travel to the Canary Isalnds on Sunday to complete the free transfer.
The 29-year old will sign for one season, with the option of extending the contract a further year depending on games played and behaviour – two factors which have caused him problems at his previous clubs and at senior level.
Boateng who got married recently to Italian socialite, Melissa Satta has been plaged by chronicc knee injuries and his bad boy image throughout his career.
The Italian league and cup winner with AC Milan and Carling Cup winner with Tottenham Hotspur – will undergo a medical on arrival in order to participate in Las Palmas’ first pre-season training session next week.
Although currently without a club, Boetang has been a sought-after player in his career. Having started out at Hertha Berlin, the player has had spells at Spurs (who bought him for £5.4m), Borussia Dortmund, Portsmouth, AC Milan and Schalke (for a €12m transfer fee), the latter of which rescinded the player’s contract last year for disciplinary reasons. Boetang returned to AC Milan in January, where his six-month term ended in June.
