Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang admits that he has had offers to leave Borussia Dortmund this summer, but confirms he will now be staying with the club.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has confirmed that he will be staying with Borussia Dortmund this summer.

The 28-year-old had been linked with some of Europe's biggest clubs this summer, with the likes of AC Milan, Chelsea and Manchester City among those credited with an interest.

Aubameyang has admitted that he was in talks with the Bundesliga outfit regarding his future, but has reassured BVB fans by saying he will stay put at the Signal Iduna Park.

"It is true that I spoke to Borussia Dortmund before I went on vacation," the Gabon international told German newspaper Welt am Sonntag.

"I told them my thoughts, that I was maybe ready to try something different. It was open and fair talks with Michael Zorc (Dortmund director of football) and Hans-Joachim Watzke (Dortmund CEO).

"But none of the clubs that wanted me could make it happen. So I'll stay here at Borussia Dortmund. I like staying here very much, as I feel at home in Dortmund."

Aubameyang, who still has three years remaining on his Dortmund contract, scored 31 goals in 32 Bundesliga games to win the division's Golden Boot award last season.
