"I'm very happy, so is the club and its president," Boateng told a news conference. "I hope that in the future we will do great things for this club, for this island and that we can all grow together."

"I had a difficult previous year so this was an important season for me," Boateng said. "I didn't expect to have such a good campaign because I was at a new club. That is why I'm happy. I hope to score many more goals next season."

Valencia were among the clubs that were reportedly interested in signing Boateng this summer.

"I had three teams that were very interested in me," Boateng said. "But I wanted to continue here. Money is important but it's not everything. It was more important earlier in my career but right now, what matters is that I'm happy here. I believe in this club and that is why I want to be a part of its future."

Las Palmas president Miguel Angel Ramirez said Boateng has decided to continue despite the club not being able to increase his wages

"I want to thank Prince. He is a man of his word," Ramirez said at the news conference. "There were many important teams interested in Prince, teams from La Liga and from abroad. But he has decided to remain with us, even though he will not earn more than he is currently earning because he knows the club's [financial] limitations.

"Moreover, his wife and his child live in Milan and that is a sacrifice for Prince. He could have joined another club and been closer to them. We are grateful that Prince has put his trust in us. It's great news for our club and our fans. I'm certain we will have more nights of glory with Prince having a starring role as he has done this year."

Las Palmas are currently 14th in La Liga with one game of the season remaining.
