Former Ghana midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng is once again without a club after ending his contract with Spanish club Las Palmas by mutual consent.
Las Palmas cited “irreversible personal reasons” for Boateng ‘s decision.
The 30-year-old had a contract with the La Liga side until 2020 after signing for them a year ago following a six-month absence from the sport after leaving Italy’s AC Milan.
He scored 10 goals in 28 appearances at Las Palmas including one on his debut.
Boateng has previously played for Hertha Berlin, Tottenham Hotspur, Borussia Dortmund, Portsmouth, Milan, twice, and Schalke.
The former Ghana international said after putting pen to paper on a contract until June 2020 with Las Palmas that he had turned down several offers this summer to remain at the club, where he was “very happy.”
Las Palmas president Ramirez thanked Boateng in May for turning down lucrative offers from other European clubs that would have seen the player move closer to Milan, where his wife and child live.
However, Boateng has now reconsidered that decision.
The statement continued: “The player’s personal situation has precipitated his departure. Boateng will continue his sporting career in a place that will allow him to be closer to his family.
“The club wishes to thank the player for his professionalism during his season with us and especially for the gesture he made when he signed a new contract when he had better financial offers from important European clubs. Las Palmas wishes him success and will always be grateful for the season he had with us.”
