Ghanaian midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng has been excused from Eintracht Frankfurt’s pre-season training ahead of his supposed move to Italian top-flight side Sassuolo.
The session on Wednesday morning was the official start of training for the Eintracht squad, with over 1,000 supporters in attendance at the Commerzbank-Arena to watch the first session under new boss Adi Hütter.
Boateng 31, was a notable absentee as he edges closer to a sensational return to the Italian Serie A after just a season back in the Bundesliga with Frankfurt.
“It’s true that Kevin-Prince is in transfer talks,” said Frankfurt Eintracht sporting director Bruno Hübner. “He informed us of his wish.”
The Former AC Milan star will be signing a three year deal with Sassuolo as negotiations between the player’s agent and the Italian club get to a close.
