Aubameyang signs new Dortmund deal

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has confirmed that star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has put pen to paper on a new contract.

The Gabon international has committed himself to another three-and-a-half years at the club, signing a deal until 2021.

However, Zorc has admitted that the agreement doesn’t mean Aubameyang will spend the rest of his career at Signal Iduna Park and he expects the marksman to make at least one more move before hanging up his boots for good.

“The contract runs through to ’21,” Zorc told Sky. “That’s still a long way away.

“One day, he will certainly leave Borussia Dortmund – he won’t end his career here. He’s an extremely important player for us, and we continue to plan with him.”

Aubameyang later confirmed the deal on social media, adding that he put pen to paper some time ago already.

“Let me listen to music!! Better than the newspapers. It’s a bit of time since I extended my contract. But it’s not your mistake, you didn’t know as much.”

Aubameyang has been in prolific form again this season, scoring 21 goals in 23 appearances across all competitions for Dortmund.
