Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner has reiterated his desire to exit the club during the January transfer window in order to rejuvenate his career, the Daily Star reports.

The Danish forward was reportedly close to joining Premier League returnees Crystal Palace on transfer deadline day but the move was blocked by Arsene Wenger as cover for Olivier Giroud, and he has been used sparingly ever since.

The 25-year-old has made just seven appearances so far this term, most of which have come from the bench and he has yet to find the back of the net.

Bendtner has insisted that his desire to leave is guided more by the lure of regular game time rather than what he is liable to earn.

“I want to get away from Arsenal. Whether it is in the winter, we must wait and see,” he told reporters while away on international duty.

“I will make my decision depending on where the greatest sporting challenge lies. Finances, in this context, mean very little to me.

“I’ve been playing football since I was four years old and back then it was for the love of the sport. It is for the love of the sport that I play today as well.”

Earlier this week Denmark coach Morten Olsen urged Bendtner to find a new club to play for as soon as possible.
