Borussia Dortmund won't block Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from leaving this summer.

The Sunday Express says reports in France indicate that Aubameyang has been told by Dortmund that he is free to leave after failing to consistently break into their starting XI despite scoring 13 times.

Aubameyang has a contract with the club until 2018 but there is a release clause of just over £6m which has re-ignited interest from Newcastle United.

Chelsea are also being linked, having been told in May that he was not for sale.
