Boateng: Ghana international has signed with Dnipro
Derek Boateng has completed his move to Ukrainian side FC Dnipro, as a proposed move to the Premier League fell through.
Skysports.com revealed that West Brom had been leading the chase in England for the Ghana international, and made an approach.
But they could not agree terms with the Spanish club, who had already seen their demands met by Dnipro.
Aston Villa also showed an interest, but Boateng has now sealed a move to the Ukraine outfit.
The 28-year-old midfielder has now penned a five-year deal with Dnipro.
