Unwanted Arsenal Forward Nicklas Bendtner Close to Joining Premier League Newcomers Hull City

Danish hitman has been with the Gunners for the past eight years now.

Misfiring Arsenal front man Nicklas Bendtner is set for a move to Premier League new boys Hull City this summer after his proposed transfer to Bundesliga outfit Eintracht Frankfurt collapsed on Saturday, says the Daily Star on Sunday.

The lanky Denmark international had appeared on the verge of joining the German side, only for Frankfurt to baulk at the idea of meeting the striker’s exorbitant wage demands of £52,000 per week.

However, Bendtner now looks like joining up forces with Tigers head coach Steve Bruce for the third time in his career in England, with Bruce having already taken the player on loan while in charge of both Birmingham City and Sunderland.

Either way, Gunners manager Arsene Wenger will just be happy that someone is prepared to take the Dane off his hands, with Bendtner having generally struggled to hold down a regular starting berth up front for the north London club since first arriving at the Emirates in the summer of 2005.

In the intervening eight-year period, the centre forward has found the back of the net on just 45 occasions in his 157 appearances overall in all competitions for Arsenal, including only 22 strikes in his 99 Premier League outings, and now Bendtner’s long association with the club appears to be over.
