Kevin-Prince Boateng has joined Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt on a two-year deal after the Ghana international abruptly rescinded his contract with LaLiga side Las Palmas earlier this week, explaining that he wanted to be closer to his family.
The 30-year-old Boateng, who has also played for Tottenham Hotspur, Portsmouth and twice for AC Milan among other clubs, netted 10 goals and provided five assists for Las Palmas last season.
"We know Kevin's strengths in midfield and are convinced that he can play a key role in our team," Frankfurt sports director Fredi Bobic said in a statement. "Kevin is a winner with endless will."
Kovac: "Prince will bring a lot to this team"
Berlin-born Boateng, whose half-brother Jerome plays for Bayern Munich and Germany, has also played for Borussia Dortmund, Hertha Berlin and Schalke 04 in the Bundesliga.
“Prince will bring a lot to this team. He brings a genuine footballing quality with him and I’m delighted to have him in my team,” said Frankfurt coach Niko Kovac.
The season kicks off on Friday with champions Bayern Munich taking on Bayer Leverkusen. Eintracht are in action in Freiburg on Sunday.
