Ghanaian forward Kevin Prince Boateng will get an automatic extension of his contract if he plays at least 45 minutes in 10 games, GHANAsoccernet.com can exclusively report.

The Ghana international has joined the Turkish side on loan from Serie A outfit Fiorentina.
And the injury-prone former Schalke 04 forward has been told to play 9 matches to earn a permanent contract.
“If he plays 45 more minutes in 9 games, his contract will be extended. There will no rental,” Besiktas manager Emre Kocadağ said.
“He played one, his contract will be extended if he plays 45 more minutes in 9 games. There will be no rental fee, we will only pay the full salary next season.
“There are 3 matches left to complete the mandatory option. We are still waiting for an answer for revision from the club. If these conditions persist, we will not pay. But we think his club would not want Rebocho to lose value by not playing .”
Boateng made 15 appearances for Fiorentina this season, scoring once.
