Hertha Berlin have confirmed the signing of former Barcelona striker Kevin Prince Boateng on a one-year contract.
The Ghanaian made his Bundesliga debut at the club in 2006, before going on to star in the Premier League, LaLiga, and Serie B.
"Kevin-Prince Boateng knows Hertha BSC, the Bundesliga and Berlin. He won't need long to settle in. Prince's leadership qualities are a great addition to our team, both on and off the pitch.
"He has also proven his skills as a player at the highest level for several years. Overall, everything about this transfer is right," said sporting director Fredi Bobic.
Boateng joined the Hertha BSC academy as a seven-year-old and moved up through the ranks of the club's youth sides, before breaking into the first-team squad in 2005.
He made a combined 53 appearances for Hertha (five goals, nine assists) in the Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and UEFA Cup, before joining Tottenham Hotspur in 2007.
Following a loan spell at Borussia Dortmund and a stint at Portsmouth, Boateng joined AC Milan, where he became an Italian champion in 2011, before joining Genoa.
