Besiktas send Boateng back to Fiorentina

Kevin-Prince Boateng is reportedly heading back to Fiorentina, as Besiktas will not take up their purchase or extended loan options.

The 33-year-old Ghana international made the move on loan in January and scored two goals in his eight Super Lig appearances for Besiktas.

However, beIN Sports claim the Turkish side decided not to activate the option to buy, nor attempt to extend the loan for a full season.

It remains to be seen whether Fiorentina will keep Boateng or try to sell him on this summer.

Boateng: 'I didn't have to think twice'

Kevin-Prince Boateng said he “didn’t have to think twice” about moving from Fiorentina to Besiktas this winter.

The former Ghana international was loaned out to the Turkish club with a performance-based option to make the deal permanent this summer.

The 32-year-old had only spent six months at the Artemio Franchi and played 14 games, contributing one goal in Serie A this term.

Now, he has embarked on a new adventure in Turkey and reveals he has always followed Besiktas.

Boateng signs for Besiktas

Kevin-Prince Boateng has left Fiorentina and signed for Besiktas on loan for the rest of the season.

Boateng signed for the Viola only last summer, but has struggled to nail down a starting place under first Vincenzo Montella and then with Beppe Iachini.

The 32-year-old has been mainly reduced to substitute appearances and scored only once, against Napoli on the opening day of the season.

There were reports this would be a loan with obligation to buy based on appearances, but there is no confirmation of that in either club statement.

Boateng: Bought three cars in one day!

Fiorentina’s Kevin-Prince Boateng has expressed regret about the lack of professionalism he showed earlier in his career. “I bought three cars in one day.”

Boateng was arguably known more for his off-field antics than those on it as he struggled to settle down at the likes of Tottenham Hotspur, Borussia Dortmund, Portsmouth and Milan.

However, the 32-year-old has since reinvented himself as a striker, scoring goals for Las Palmas, Eintracht Frankfurt, Sassuolo and now Fiorentina.
