Borussia Dortmund have agreed to prematurely extend the contract of forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has been coveted by a number of European clubs, until 30 June 2020. The speedy striker’s initial contract was set to expire in 2018.

“I’m absolutely delighted that the next years of my career will be spent at Borussia Dortmund. I feel very happy at the club, in this team and in this city. BVB has become like a second home to me. Every part of me wants to be here and I have never wanted to leave,” said the 26-year-old striker, who joined the club in 2013.

“Auba has developed outstandingly. We are very happy that we have been able to tie him down to a long-term contract,” explained Sporting Director Michael Zorc after Aubameyang’s contract had been extended.
