Borussia Dortmund suspend forward, Dembele 'until further notice'

Likely to stay at Bernabeu Bale

The striker went AWOL on the eve of the Bundesliga start as he tries to force through a move to the Nou Camp as part of the Neymar replacement project.

Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has endorsed Borussia Dortmund's tough stance on Barcelona target Ousmane Dembele.

Our referenced source is suggesting that the decision was taken after a meeting between the Borussia Dortmund manager Peter Bosz, the chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke and the sporting director Michael Zorc. "FC Rielasingen-Arlen on Saturday evening".

Borussia Dortmund have confirmed that they have extended Ousmane Dembele's suspension "until further notice".

Philippe Coutinho, Eden Hazard, Ousmane Dembele, Angel Di Maria, Paulo Dybala, Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann, all make up the list of a host of world class names linked with a move to the Catalan giants.

The 20-year-old missed training without permission on Thursday, with Dortmund head coach Bosz telling a news conference the club had been unable to contact Dembele.

"Now it is not likely that there will be a transfer of our player", Dortmund said in an official statement.

Dembele has reportedly agreed a five-year deal worth £9m a season with Barca - and rejected overtures from Real Madrid.

Dembele will be expected to train on his own while the rest of the squad prepare for their first Bundesliga game of the season against Wolfsburg next Saturday.

But his impressive performances - he scored six goals and provided 12 assists - have made him one of the hottest young properties in Europe.
