Former Arsenal winger, Jermaine Pennant has said that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is not returning to the club.

Pennant believes that the Gabonese will join Newcastle who are now in pole position to sign him this January transfer window.

Aubameyang was stripped of Arsenal’s captaincy and banished from the main team in December after being accused of disciplinary issue.

In his absence, Arsenal have won five games in a stretch while scoring 20 times, only losing to Manchester City on Saturday.

Aubameyang has since left north London to meet up with Gabon for the Africa Cup of Nations campaign.
Pennant believes there may be ‘no coming back’ for Aubameyang to the Emirates Stadium.
