Management of Turkish top flight side Besiktas are in a big dilemma over the future of Kevin Prince Boateng after his 'hot and cold' performances for the club.
Boateng started his career in Turkey in blistering form, netting two goals in his first three games for the Black and Whites.
However, the 32-year old has seen a sharp decline in form and was substituted in Saturday's derby draw with Galatasaray.
Boateng joined Besiktas on loan from Italian side Fiorentina untill the end of the season with an option of making the move a permanent one.
Besiktas had agreed if the Ghana international played more than 45 minutes in ten games, they will hand the player a contract extension.
As it stands, Boateng has achieved half of that and could reach the target before the end of the season.
Meanwhile, the Turkish giants will have to make at least 1.7 million Euros available in salaries for the striker despite their overall budget of about 18 million Euros for next season.
Boateng has made six appearances since joining the club and has two goals to his name.
