Young Ghanaian international Kelvin Boateng has joined Portuguese club FC Porto on a season-long deal from CD Aves.
The deal was confirmed via FC Porto’s official Twitter handle and he will initially play for Porto’s B team.
Speaking in an interview with the club’s official website, Boateng said he hopes to achieve more with the Portuguese side.
“I am very excited to get to FC Porto and I want to make history here.”
“I want to help FC Porto B and score goals, so I can reach the main team. Collectively, we will fight for victory in every game, regardless of the opponent,” Boateng said.
“What I can promise is that I will give everything to help the team, preferably with goals,” he added.
The striker netted 12 goals in 32 games for CD Aves’s U-23 team.
The Dragons have an option to renew the loan deal.
