Ghanaian international Kevin Prince Boateng says he overlooked a lot of offers to sign a contract extension with Las Palmas.
The 29-year-old signed a three-year deal with the Spanish Liga Santander side to keep him at the club until 2020.
"I'm very happy, so is the club and its president," Boateng told a news conference. "I hope that in the future we will do great things for this club, for this island and that we can all grow together."
"I had a difficult previous year so this was an important season for me," Boateng said. "I didn't expect to have such a good campaign because I was at a new club. That is why I'm happy. I hope to score many more goals next season."
"I had three teams that were very interested in me," Boateng said. "But I wanted to continue here. Money is important but it's not everything. It was more important earlier in my career but right now, what matters is that I'm happy here. I believe in this club and that is why I want to be a part of its future."
