Barcelona sign Kevin Prince-Boateng on season-long loan with option to buy

Barcelona have signed the former Tottenham and Portsmouth midfielder Kevin Prince-Boateng on a season-long loan from Italian side Sassuolo.

Boateng, 31, whose brother Jerome plays for Germany, returns to La Liga having played for Las Palmas for the 2016/17 season.

The deal also includes the option for Barcelona to buy Ghana international Boateng for £7.1 million in the summer.

Speaking about the decision to move to Barcelona, Boateng said: “It’s a very sad day. Because I’m saying goodbye to an amazing group and club like Sassuolo that gave me a lot.

“Going to Barcelona is a huge opportunity and an incredible feeling. I was very stressed today but I wanted to say goodbye to everyone, I respect Sassuolo.
