Kevin-Prince Boateng will wear the number 19 jersey after completing a loan transfer to Spanish giants FC Barcelona today.

He reportedly put pen to paper on a six-month loan deal earlier today to join Barca on-loan from Sassuolo.

Boateng, 31, is expected to join his teammates for training tomorrow.

Adding experience and versatility to the team

Born in Berlin on 6 March 1987, Kevin-Prince Boateng is a player who will surely adapt quickly to the team. With experience of playing in four of the biggest leagues in Europe, the Premier League, the Bundesliga, Serie A and La Liga, he is a man who has scored goals wherever he has been.

Furthermore, Boateng is a player who versatile to a fault. During his time with Las Palmas with Quique Setién as coach he played as an out and out striker, a typical number ‘9’. However, he is also able to play further back as he did at AC Milan, scoring twice against Barça in his time with the rossoneri. His ability to bring people into the game means he is excellent at playing behind the main striker.
