The 31-year-old who represented his native country at the 2006 World Cup has scored four goals in 13 appearances for Sassulo this season.

Boateng joined the Italian club from Eintracht Frankfurt in the German Bundesliga after winning DFB-Pokal last season with a 2-0 victory over champions Bayern Munich.

The ex-Tottenham star has been influential to Sassulo's strong start in the early part of the season as they topped the table for a number of weeks before losing their position to Juventus and the likes.
