Black Stars midfielder, Derek Boateng has been released by Spanish top-flight club Rayo Vallecano only months after he joined the side.
This decision was reached after a mutual agreement between both parties.
The news was confirmed in an official statement released on the Rayo Vallecano website.
The statement read: “Rayo Vallecano de Madrid and Derek Boateng have reached an agreement for the termination of the contract between both parties. The player will play in SD Eibar. We wish him well in his new adventure.”
Derek Boateng joined Rayo Valecano in June 2014 and was hoping to revamp his lukewarm career after his unconvincing stint at English Premier League outfit, Fulham which saw him play only 3 games in the 2013/14 season.
However, reports indicate that, the 31 year old midfielder has been shown the exit after he failed to meet the fitness requirements at Rayo Vallecano during the pre – season.
Boateng is now expected to seal a move to newly promoted side, Eibar in coming days.
Derek Boateng represented Ghana in the 2006 and 2010 World Cups and has also played in several leagues across Europe including the Greek, Swedish, Israeli, German, Spanish and Ukrainian leagues.
