Spanish sides Las Palmas and Valencia would have to wait until the summer to know their fate regarding the possible acquisition of Ghana international Kevin-Prince Boateng for next season, his representative Federico Pastorello has revealed.
The Liga outfits are among a host of clubs hot on the heels of the Ghanaian following his good form this season.
Contracted to Las Palmas until the end of the current campaign, the 30-year-old has impressively notched nine goals so far in 25 appearances involving 22 starts.
"Prince has had a fantastic season and it's clear that now he is focused on ending the campaign in the best possible way and giving his best to the team," Pastorello told Canaria En Hora.
"He will then talk to the [club] president and make a decision. He hasn't made a decision yet. He will start thinking about it in the next few weeks.
"Prince is a professional and he will evaluate all possibilities and without a doubt, among them is the possibility of staying at a club that has treated him so well.
"I'm certain that once he makes the decision it will be for a longer period of time [than one year]."
Las Palmas president Miguel Angel Ramirez recently revealed their interest in extending Boateng's stay, but admits financial limitations may stand in their way.
"If he decides to remain, it will not be for one more year. I even think that he should consider remaining until the end of his career," Pastorello continued.
"Prince is very happy here and it will be complicated to find a place that will offer him the same affection.
"At this stage of his career and having already played at important clubs, I think he will value the quality of his personal life and also the relationship with his teammates and that will favour Las Palmas."
Boateng was previously on the books of Italian club AC Milan, English outfits Portsmouth and Tottenham Hotspur as well as German sides Schalke 04, Borussia Dortmund and Hertha Berlin.
