UD Las Palmas have terminated the contract of Kevin-Prince Boateng due to “irreversible personal reasons”.
Boateng and Las Palmas reached an agreement to end the contract after the player requested to depart the club just three days before Las Palmas kick off their 2017/2018 La Liga campaign.
An official statement from the club reads: “UD Las Palmas and Prince Boateng have reached an agreement to terminate the contract that linked the player to the club for the next three seasons. Irreversible personal reasons have led to this unexpected exit.”
“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.”

“The player alongside club president Miguel Angel Ramirez will give a news conference this afternoon to bid farewell to the fans.”
30-year-old Boateng, who was Las Palmas highest goal scorer last season, joined the La Liga club last year after he was also released by AC Milan, scoring 10 goals and providing 4 assists in 28 league appearances for the La UD.
“The club wishes to thank the player for his professionalism during his season with us and especially for the gesture he made when he signed a new contract when he had better financial offers from important European clubs. Las Palmas wishes him success and will always be grateful for the season he had with us.” the statement concludes.
