Newcastle United fans appear divided over rumours linking them with Maximilian Philipp of Borussia Dortmund.

The Chronicle have suggested that Newcastle want Philipp on loan for the rest of the season, as Rafael Benitez searches for a striker.


The Magpies only have a limited budget, and Philipp could now reportedly be a value for money option.

But Newcastle fans are not all pleased with the idea of going after the striker.

While some Magpies supporters feel he has a lot to offer, others think he would not be a worthwhile addition.

Philipp has scored just one this season for Dortmund in the league, and he has barely been used as a starter.

The German has previously proven to be a good option in the Bundesliga though.

If Philipp was to move to Newcastle he would be in competition with Salomon Rondon for a starting place.
