David joined Palace, aged 8 and signed his first professional contract with the club in July 2017. Playing mainly in the full-back role but with the ability to fill in in midfield, he became a regular in the U18s’ Professional Development League winning team during 2017/18.
In season 2020/21 Boateng capped a fine campaign with the Under-23s by scoring at Selhurst Park in Palace’s crucial victory over Middlesbrough, as they qualified for the play-offs in their first season as a Category 1 Academy.
In 2021/22, David Boateng made 19 appearances for Crystal Palace’s U23s, including three appearances in the Papa John’s Trophy.
David made the first-team bench in the Carabao Cup tie against Oxford United in August 2022.

“We are happy to have signed David Boateng. He is a modern wing back who can bring extra threat to our team. He is quick and looks to go forward to provide the team with overlaps. But he is also skillful enough to play as what they call these days an inverted wing back. We are happy with him joining us.”
