Kevin-Prince Boateng has announced that he is leaving Turkish Super Lig giants Besiktas following the expiration of his loan deal.
The 33-year-old joined the Black Eagles from Fiorentina in January and made a total of 11 top-flight appearances, scoring three goals and providing an assist in the process.
The player has announced his Besiktas departure on his Instagram account, thanking staff, players and fans for their support during his stay at the club.
“I just want to thank the big Besiktas family very, very much for making me feel at home from the first minute. I will really miss you every moment and you will always be in my heart,” Boateng posted on Instagram.
Boateng scored on his debut in a 3-0 win over Gaziantep, followed by another in a 2-2 draw with Trabzonspor.
His last outing came in a 2-0 win over Istanbul rivals Fenerbahce, who finished with 10 men.
The German-born Ghanaian is returning to Fiorentina to fight for a place in the team after early struggles in the first half of the season.
Boateng joined Fiorentina from Sassuolo last summer on a two-year deal, with the option of extending for another year.
