Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has claimed that he will never sign for Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur after the north London club acted “weirdly” during transfer talks in the summer of 2012, according to reports in the Metro.

The Gabon international was in discussions to move to White Hart Lane last year while he was still a Saint-Etienne player, only for Aubameyang’s planned move to the capital to then fall through.

Aubameyang instead decided to sign for the Bundesliga outfit and last season’s Champions League runners-up, agreeing a five-year deal with Jurgen Klopp’s side back in July.

However, after the eye-catching start to life in the Ruhr Valley that the 24-year-old has since made, perhaps Tottenham head coach Andre Villas-Boas will now be regretting the collapse of Aubameyang’s proposed move to the Lane.

In total so far in this campaign, the forward has managed to register an impressive six goals and three assists in his 15 matches in total in all competitions for Dortmund, with Aubameyang confirming ahead of the German giants’ Champions League encounter with Arsenal at the Emirates on Tuesday night: “Tottenham tried to sign me in June 2012.

“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.”
