Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang insists he is happy at Borussia Dortmund and hinted that he could stay beyond 2020 owing to the passion of the club's fans.

The 27-year-old penned a contract extension running until the turn of the decade despite being linked to the likes of Manchester City and Real Madrid, with the latter long-term admirers of the Gabon striker.

He has been in prolific form this season and scored the winner against rivals Bayern Munich in Der Klassiker last Saturday, moving to 12 goals in 10 Bundesliga games.

Signal Iduna Park and the 25,000-strong 'Yellow Wall' on the stadium's Sudtribune were in full voice, and Aubameyang has cited Dortmund's passionate support as a key reason he sees himself at the club for the long haul.

"The fans of BVB are really incredible, it's hard to describe what you feel when you play in front of them," he told Soccer Laduma.

"The atmosphere they create, not just with the 'Yellow Wall', with the 25,000 fans present in each game, [but] for the whole 90 minutes, regardless of the result or the opponent.

"There are many things that the fans and the city of Dortmund generally appreciate.

"All of this has contributed to the decision to extend my contract to 2020 and I can imagine staying even longer.

"God alone knows what will happen in the future."
