Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang displays his latest acquisition 

Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has poured cold water on rumours of a move to Arsenal.

Speculation from England was that the Gunners were prepared to table a £60m move for the Borussia Dortmund forward.

But moments after claiming his first African Player of the Year gong, Aubameyang told ColinUdoh.com that the move was not happening 

"Let me say this first. I am not going to Arsenal. Dortmund is my club and I am not leaving soon," he said.

Aubameyang edged out four-time winner Yaya Toure and Ghana forward Andre Ayew to win the top prize and broke down in tears 

"I am not usually an emotional person but to win this award, with players like Yaya and Dede is an important moment for me. I don't usually cry, but this has made me cry."
