A statement on the club's official website reads: "Kevin-Prince Boateng is a player who will surely adapt quickly to the team".

Barcelona have signed Sassuolo's Kevin-Prince Boateng on loan until the end of the season, the clubs announced on Monday.

While the abovementioned four players are the only African stars who have represented Barcelona in more than 100 games, Angola's Jorge Alberto Mendonca was the first African to play for the Spanish giants. The former Ghana global was first made aware of Barca's interest on Saturday and said the last few days have been surreal.

"I want to play well and sign on for more years here, that's the objective, ” said Boateng".

"It is a great honour to be here".

"We had a good group but I explained that this was an opportunity I could not miss". I had to run here. I'm here to watch how they play.

"I know I won't be a regular starter".

Solskjaer: Lukaku is big part of Man United squad
He has just grown in confidence, the maturity the way he plays, but his work-rate never stops and that is the most pleasing". It doesn't add pressure. "The players have to be proud of the form and the momentum they are building", Solskjaer said.


Munir started twice and came off the bench seven times this season before leaving Barca, and Boateng can expect the play with similar frequency.

"I am here for my experience and to help". At my age - 31, almost 32 - the No.9 role is ideal for me. It's old stuff, I'm very focused on Barca. "That's why I am here and that is my objective".

Boateng joined Spurs from Hertha Berlin in 2007, but failed to make an impression at White Hart Lane before being shipped out on loan to Dortmund, and then spending a season at Portsmouth as they were relegated to the Championship. There are unlikely to be more arrivals but the club are already working on a deal for Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong to join in the summer.

On Tuesday, a modest crowd attended Boateng's presentation at the Nou Camp, which included the now seemingly traditional keepy-uppies photo-op on Barca's hallowed turf.
