Boateng and four others move on
Its now been officially confirmed, on The Pompey Site, that Kevin-Prince Boateng has left for Genoa in a 'strange' move to say the least...
No fee has been revealed, although 'most reports' say it is around the £5.5m mark.
The thing that makes the move so strange is the agreement that looks 'set' to see him leave Genoa for a loan spell with Milan, ahead of a possible transfer next summer - 'if' he impresses with Milan than you would think that Genoa would sell him with a hefty profit, in spite of him 'possibly' never even playing for the club!
A certainty is the fact that Prince has now left.
In many ways I am not sorry to see this in all honesty although he is of course a quality footballer and I wish him well, although I also feel, as talented as he is, he is not 'quite' as good as he thinks he is and 'perhaps' this will be found out?
Joining him in leaving the club, which was again confirmed on The Pompey Site, are Danijel Subotic, Jordan Hughes, Gael Nlundulu and Gautier Mahoto.
All have had their contracts terminated by mutual consent and all leave the club, bar Mahoto, having failed to make a 1st team appearance - some, in the case of Subotic, in as long as 2 ½ years at the club as a professional...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
