The New England Revolution announced Thursday they've signed veteran midfielder Emmanuel Boateng in free agency.

Boateng is entering his ninth professional season, sixth in MLS. The Ghana native spent three years in Sweden's first-tier Allsvenskan with Helsingborgs IF before stints with the L.A. Galaxy, D.C. United, and the 2020 MLS Cup champion Columbus Crew SC.

“Ema Boateng is an experienced left-footed attacking player with very good pace. He is comfortable playing on the flanks, which is an area where he can help improve our team.” Revs head coach Bruce Arena said. “Ema’s character and professionalism will be welcomed additions to our team, and we look forward to his arrival in Foxborough.”

Boateng is the latest signing for a Revs organization that has been active in free agency. New England signed three-time MLS champ A.J. DeLaGarza earlier in the day. 

In 121 career appearances, Boateng has tallied nine goals and 14 assists. The soon-to-be 27-year-old played under Bruce Arena during his time with the Galaxy from 2016-19.
