Kevin-Prince Boateng has joined Turkish side Besiktas from Italian club Fiorentina.

Boateng has moved to Turkey in a loan deal until the end of the season. It is understood that the deal includes an option to buy.

Ghanian international and former Barcelona frontman only joined La Viola this past summer. But has struggled to make an impact.

Boateng has a wealth of expeience , and his resume reads a who is who of footballing royaly.

His former employers includes the likes of AC Milan, FC Schalke, Eintracht Frankfurt, Tottenham Hotspur and of course Barcelona.

Unfortunately, none of these relationships seem to last too long.

The hope is his deadline day move to Besiktas can revive his career and he can finally settle at a club at the ripe old age of 32.

He took to social media to confirm the move. Using Turkish, he simply stated: “I’m glad to be here!”
