In the run up to join Ghana’s training camp in Abu Dhabi, Boateng had been negotiating a move to English side, Fulham from Ukrainian club Dnipro after completing a successful medical last week.
The Ghana midfielder is one of the 24 members of Kwesi Appiah’s preliminary squad pressing for positions in the final team.
Derek Boateng maintains his objective to work hard for Ghana, who are preparing for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations as he blanks all club matters.
Despite the move yet to be finalized, Boateng says his focus is just on Ghana’s preparations for the Cup of Nations in South Africa.
“I am fully committed to Ghana and currently I am only thinking about the Black Stars and how to do something special for the country.”
Boateng has taken part in all of Ghana’s training sessions at the Zayad City Sports Complex in Abu Dhabi since Saturday morning.
“Training has been tough but very good for the players as I want to achieve some fitness level before we depart to South Africa.”
Ghana will continue with their two friendly matches against Egypt and Tunisia in Abu Dhabi before departing to South Africa for the tournament (Afcon 2013).
