Report: Adrian Ramos to snub Crystal Palace and West Brom for Dortmund stay

Adrian Ramos looks set to stay with Borussia Dortmund despite Premier League interest.

According to the Daily Mirror, Borussia Dortmund striker Adrian Ramos is edging towards staying with the Bundesliga club - despite offers from Crystal Palace.

Ramos, 29, had earned a reputation as one of the deadliest strikers in Germany during his time with Hertha Berlin, where he smashed 65 goals in 176 games before a move to Borussia Dortmund last summer.

Viewed as a replacement for Robert Lewandowski, Ramos arrived with big expectations - but couldn't live up to them, scoring just six goals in 29 games.

Despite fellow striker Ciro Immobile leaving Signal Iduna Park for Sevilla, speculation has been linking Ramos with a move to the Premier League - and The Mirror note that Crystal Palace and West Bromwich Albion were two clubs who wanted to lure the Colombian international to England.

However, the report also states that Ramos is now likely to stay with Dortmund after a conversation with new manager Thomas Tuchel, who is keen to keep Ramos.

That is a big blow for Palace and West Brom, both of whom require striking reinforcements ahead of the new Premier League season.

Ramos may have struggled last season but he possesses great aerial ability and pace to run in behind defences - attributes that would have served him well in the Premier League.

Now though, both Palace and West Brom have to turn their attentions elsewhere, with Ramos poised to turn down a move to the Premier League in favour of fighting for his future with Dortmund.
