Our friends, over at Sky Sports are reporting that Ousmane Dembele has been suspended "until further notice".

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

Bosz, chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke and sporting director Michael Zorc held a meeting on Saturday night and they have now chose to extend Dembele's suspension "until further notice" and he will have to train on his own.

Whilst suspended, the Barcelona target will be expected to train on his own as Borussia Dortmund prepare for their opening game of the Bundesliga season against Wolfsburg.

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

Dortmund met with Barcelona's representatives but the Spanish club did not meet their valuation.

Dembele has been sounded out by LaLiga giants Barca as a replacement for Neymar, following his astounding EUR222million world-record switch to Paris Saint-Germain.

Dortmund have now announced Dembele will be punished for his no-show and will be banned until after this Saturday's DFB-Pokal clash with Rielasingen-Arlen.

"Ousmane Dembele has the possibility to do individual training away from the group".

While Dembele has been strongly linked with a move to Barca, Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho is also said to be interesting Ernesto Valverde's side and has reportedly handed in a transfer request.
