Boateng moves to Genoa, immediately joins Milan on loan

Genoa have completed the signing of Kevin-Prince Boateng from Portsmouth for a fee of around £5 million, though the Ghana midfielder has been immediately shipped out on loan to Serie A rivals AC Milan.

Boateng has been training with Milan this week while the two clubs have been thrashing out an agreement about the player's future.

Portsmouth confirmed the Ghana forward's move on their official website, with chief executive David Lampitt saying: "We wish Kevin all the best. He played an important role last season and we thank him for that.''

And soon after, Milan revealed on their website that they have taken Boateng on a season-long loan with the option of a permanent deal next summer.

The move will likely see Genoa make a healthy profit on the 26-year-old if he impresses at the San Siro, though he may bizarrely never end up playing a game for the Rossoblu.

Meanwhile, Genoa have loaned striker Robert Acquafresca to Cagliari. The 22-year-old struggled to impress either at Genoa or on loan at Atalanta last term and returns to the club where he made a strong impact in a loan spell two season ago.

"There have been many false things written, but the truth is I didn't want another year like the last one,'' Acquafresca told Cagliari's website. "I knew that here I could start afresh. I can only thank my friends for having welcomed me back.''
