Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang: 'I would never join Tottenham Hotspur'

Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang vows never to join Tottenham after they scuppered an opportunity to sign him because of "weird" negotiations.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has vowed never to join Tottenham Hotspur after they scuppered their chance to sign him last summer because of their "weird" negotiations.

The 24-year-old was recruited by Borussia Dortmund in July, but had previously been the target of several of Europe's elite clubs during his time at French outfit Saint-Etienne.

The Gabon international claims that Spurs were one of those sides interested in him, but that he turned down a move to White Hart Lane when talks took a negative turn. He has insisted that the Lillywhites will not get a second chance to bring him to North London.

"Tottenham tried to sign me in June 2012," Aubameyang told reporters. "But in the end everything became a bit weird. I didn't really like the way things were done."

"If Spurs ever came back in for me, I'd say no."

Aubameyang has scored five goals in his first nine Bundesliga games for Dortmund, and came on as a second-half substitute in their Champions League victory over Arsenal on Tuesday.
