Gabon striker Aubameyang extends contract with Borussia Dortmund

BY foxsports • July 31, 2015

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has extended his contract with Borussia Dortmund until 2020.

Aubameyang had recently been linked with a move to the Premier League, but has put that speculation to rest with the new long-term deal.

"I'm absolutely delighted that the next years of my career will be spent at Borussia Dortmund," he said on the Westphalian club's website.

"I feel very happy at the club, in this team and in this city.

"Dortmund has become like a second home to me. Every part of me wants to be here and I have never wanted to leave."

The 26-year-old Gabon international arrived in Dortmund from Saint-Etienne in 2013 and scored 13 goals in his first Bundesliga season.

He has since increased that to 41 in all competitions.

"Auba has developed outstandingly," said Dortmund's director of sport Michael Zorc.

"We are very happy that we have been able to tie him down to a long-term contract."
