Published on: 06 April 2020

Ghanaian attacker Kevin-Prince Boateng has been granted permission by Besiktas to travel out Turkey following the suspension of the Super Lig due to the coronavirus pandemic, Ghanasoccernet.com can exclusively reveal.

The Turkish top-flight was finally suspended last week and is expected not to return until June.

Boateng initially held a private meeting with the club's management over his decision to leave the country last month but was not allowed.

However, he has now been given the opportunity to leave with his family. Ghanasoccernet can also report that Boateng will travel by private jet provided by the club to his destination.

It's unclear where Boateng is heading to with Italy and Germany - the two countries where he normally spends the most time at are currently under strict lockdown due high number of coronavirus cases.

Turkey were controversially one of the last European leagues to suspend the season due to the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The Turkish Football Federation are looking into the possibility of playing the remainder of games behind closed doors. This would mean teams playing as frequently as three times a week in order to wrap up the season without disrupting the 2020-21 campaign.
