Two much improved players rewarded with long term deals.
Arsenal have been boosted by the news that Nicklas Bendtner and Denilson have signed new long-term contracts.
Denmark Bendtner had been in the final year of his contract while Brazilian Denilson has blossomed in recent seasons.
Bendtner, who spent the 2006/07 on loan with Birmingham, has 14 Premier League goals in 25 starts for The Gunners.
The 21-year-old is delighted to commit his future to Arsene Wenger’s side and is looking to continue learning under the French tactician.
“It means a lot that I can commit my future to Arsenal because I have a great affection for this club,” he told the club’s official website. (Sky Sports)
Both Denilson and Bendtner have continued to impress this term after improving towards the close of last term. Both are youngsters who in the past have had their ability questioned by a great many doubters including from fans of the club. Arsene has persisted with both and proven that he can mould quality players on a consistent basis.
The Brazilian has been immense this term and helped protect Cesc and give the Arsenal skipper more room to express himself on the game. Bendtner has been played effectively out wide in the first few games of the season, something I have to say I wouldn’t have believed would’ve worked a year ago.
Nicklas has a good touch now and has matured as a player and once he gets more confident in front of goal I am sure that even in his less one dimensional role he will get valuable goals for the team.
