Aubameyang was heavily linked with a switch away from BVB and several reports claimed Premier League champions Chelsea were eyeing a move before opting to sign Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata instead.
Interest was also said to be high from China but, after months of speculation, the 28-year-old decided to stay at the Westfalenstadion and his decision has been vindicated so far after the impressive start to the campaign.
Dortmund are top of the Bundesliga by five points, having won six and drawn one of their seven matches so far, and they have been indebted to their Gabon international who has scored eight league goals.
Aubameyang, who has been with the German outfit since 2013, has been reflecting on his failed summer move and he insists he is more than happy to continue plying his trade with Die Schwarzgelben.
“I’m an honest guy,” he told SportBild. “There was a time window in the summer, in which I could have changed. We agreed on this together in all openness, because I could imagine doing something different. But it did not happen at the end.
“I have always felt very comfortable in Dortmund, in the team and at BVB. This is of course true today. The BVB is my family!”
Chelsea are reported to be in the hunt to sign Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish but face strong competition from Tottenham.
Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says they will listen to offers for Jerome Boateng if a club make a move for him.
