The president of Turkish giants Be?ikta?, Ahmet Nur Çebi, has revealed that Kevin-Prince Boateng has voluntarily removed an option that would have triggered an automatic contract extension.
The 33-year-old signed for the Super Lig side on loan in January. In the contract, an option was included. Boateng had to play for at least 45 minutes a game for 10 games to trigger a 1.7 million euro a year extension. So far, he has made seven appearances of which six of them meets the criteria.
The coronavirus pandemic has hit a lot of clubs hard including Be?ikta?. They asked the Ghanaian to remove the clause in the contract and he has agreed.
"He had the option of 1 million 700 thousand euros, but he raised it. He said," Don't be tied to me, I want to play ball, "and we removed the option," Ahmet Nur Çebi told CNN Turk.
The former Barcelona star has scored two goals for Be?ikta? so far.
