Emmanuel Boateng has been left out of the team for Monday's game

Ghana winger Emmanuel Boateng has been excluded from the squad Levante for their Spanish La Liga match against Alaves ahead of his move to China.

The 22-year-old is a regular member of the squad for Levante but on Sunday when coach Paco Lopez called his 20-man squad the Ghanaian was not included in the team.

This shows that the player is on the verge of sealing move to Chinese side Dalian Yifang as exclusively revealed by Ghanasoccernet.com on Sunday.

Boateng was expected to be part of the squad for Monday's match but the decision to completely leave him out of the team for the trip to Alaves shows he is preparing to leave.

The 22-year-old is expected to leave the Spanish city by Monday morning to seal the deal with the Chinese Super League side, agents close to the deal revealed to Ghanasoccernet.com.

The deal will massively improve the earning of the Ghana international winger as the salary will be eight times more than what he currently earns at Levante.

Boateng has had limited playing opportunities in the ranks of Granotas this terms and will try his luck in the Asian country while massively improving his bank balance.

With the transfer window in China closing on February 28, the Ghana international is well within time to seal the deal.

The man, who shot international prominence by destroying Barcelona last season with a hat-trick that broke the unbeaten record of the Catalan giants, the midfielder has drawn admiration from several clubs in Spain and abroad.

This season however, Boateng is not counting for much for coach Paco López which has prompted the Ghanaian's decision to seek for playing time elsewhere.

With the Ghanaian not having playing time and the African Cup of Nations looming in Egypt in June, Boateng is making the decision to attract the attention of Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah.
