Frankfurt close in on Boateng

Eintracht Frankfurt are close to completing the signing of yet another player, this time in Kevin-Prince Boateng, who is undergoing a medical at the club.

The Bundesliga side recently announced the signings of Simon Falette, Carlos Salcedo on loan, Gelson Fernandes, Danny da Costa and Sebastien Haller.

Now the 30-year-old former Hertha Berlin, Tottenham Hotspur, Portsmouth, Milan and FC Schalke 04 midfielder will be added to their ranks.

He spent last season at Las Palmas, scoring 10 goals in 28 La Liga appearances.

Las Palmas released a statement, saying: “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.”

Eintracht kick off their Bundesliga season away to Freiburg on Sunday.
