Following confirmation of international clearance, Fulham Football Club is delighted to announce the free transfer signing of Ghana international Derek Boateng on a one-year deal with an option for a further year. 

The 30-year-old midfielder was previously at Ukrainian side FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk, whom he played for against Fulham in last season’s UEFA Europa League qualification round.

Prior to moving to the Ukraine, Boateng made more than 70 appearances in just over two seasons at Spanish side Getafe and has represented his country on 46 occasions.

Boateng started his professional career at Kalamata FC in Greece in 1999 before moving to Panathinaikos in 2001. His move to Fulham and the Barclays Premier League follows spells in Greece, Israel, Germany, Spain and Ukraine.

Speaking from Fulham’s Motspur Park Training Ground, Boateng said: “I’m very happy that I have signed and I want to thank the Chairman, the Manager and the Board at Fulham Football Club. I’ve been working hard to come here and I’ll do my best for the Club.

“It’s been a long road for me but now I’m here I’m so happy and I can’t wait to start and give everything I have.”
