Berlin: Champions League finalists Borussia Dortmund began pre-season training on Wednesday with Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang set to join from French Cup winners Saint Etienne.

"He has been given permission to attend the medical examination. The contract details and the financial plan are still to be clarified but I have no doubt that we will reach an agreement," said Saint Etienne club president Roland Romeyer.

Dortmund's director Michael Zorc has been in France since Monday and confirmed they are in talks with the 24-year-old, who scored 19 goals and created 14 assists as Saint Etienne finished fifth in the French league last season.
