Valencia Target Derek Boateng: I Have A Contract With Getafe

    The Ghanaian enforcer has caught they eye of Los Che thanks to his performances for the Azulones both in this season and in 2009 when he was named the Madrid club’s player of the year.
    As a result, the Champions League competitors want to add the 27-year-old to their squad for next season, and are thought to have made initial enquiries as to his availability.
    However Boateng stated to the media yesterday that he sees his immediate future at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez, saying: “Currently I only think of Getafe, and I want to give the maximum for the team. I have a contract with Getafe.
    “I am every happy with my teammates and my club. If offers arrive, it will be at the initiative of the club, but I say again that I am very happy at Getafe. Our goal is to achieve a good position in the league in order to repeat the success of last season.”
    Boateng moved to La Liga from Koeln in 2009 for a fee of €1 million.
