Kevin-Prince Boateng has sealed his return to the Bundesliga, joining Eintracht Frankfurt on a two-year deal after ending his contract with La Liga outfit Las Palmas.
The former Ghana international, who has also represented Hertha Berlin, Borussia Dormtmund and FC Schalke 04 during his lengthy career, ended his relationship with La UD by mutual consent on Thursday and wasted little time in securing his future in Germany.

Speaking to the press about the transfer, Frankfurt sporting director Fredi Bobic expressed his delight at securing the services of the experienced midfielder.
“We have been in touch with Kevin for a while and we are happy to support his desire to come back to Germany and to be closer to his family,” Bobic stated.
“We know about his power and strength in midfield; he will be a key player in the team. The young players will benefit from his attitude and experience,” he added.
Boateng echoed Bobic’s statements that his desire to return to the country of his birth was for sentimental reasons.
“I missed Germany, and also playing in Bundesliga. It means a lot to me that Eintracht give me the opportunity to come home with my family,” he said, according to the club’s official website.
“I am really looking forward to play in the German topflight again, it’s an exciting league. And I cannot wait to meet my new team mates, to wear the Eintracht jersey and to go out there and play.”
