Kevin-Prince Boateng to sign one year deal with Las Palmas
The Canary islanders have reached an agreement with the German-Ghanaian player, 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 Boetang, 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.
Option of a further season depending on good behaviour
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.
Boetang – who is an Italian league and cup winner with AC Milan, as well as a 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him for £5.4m), Borussia Dortmund, Portsmouth, AC Milan and Schalke (for a €12m transfer fee), the latter of which rescinded the player’s contract last year for disciplinary reasons.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.
