Newcastle handed boost with top January attacking target made available on loan

As per the Daily Mail, Borussia Dortmund are ready to sanction a Premier League loan exit for out-of-favour attacker Andre Schurrle, giving Newcastle a boost in their pursuit of the Germany international.

The 27-year-old has started just 2 Bundesliga games this term, and is looking to leave the Bundesliga giants this month for regular playing minutes elsewhere.

Dortmund are ready to pay half of his £150,000-a-week wages, but it remains to be seen if Newcastle can afford the £5.4million his wages for the next 18 months will cost.

The Toons need goals to guarantee their survival, but they have struggled to create the needed chances in the attacking third.

Schurrle’s creativity and finishing abilities can get the goals rolling in again at Tyneside, but competition is fierce for his services.

The former Chelsea forward and Premier League winner is also attracting Stoke City and West Ham, and more suitors should emerge in the race given his top quality.
