Nicklas Bendtner has confirmed he’ll be leaving Arsenal but refused to be drawn on a possible destination. The Bendtner saga has been over-shadowed by the continuous speculation over the futures of Nasri and Fabregas this summer, but it looks as a move is very close.
Speaking ahead of Denmark’s friendly against Scotland, Nick was asked if the transfer had been arranged. “Yes. I have done my part as well as I can and it’s up to Arsenal now to sort it out, I can’t do anything more. Hopefully it will be sorted soon but as I said to the Danish press, when I know something they will.
“I would like to play at a place where you are happy and play every week, that is the most important thing for any football player and hopefully that will happen soon.”
Stoke City has been mooted as a possible desination but Bendtner said, “I can’t say anything about who I have been speaking to, but hopefully it will all get sorted out soon.”
Arseblog News would like to rule out Stoke as his new club for a number of reasons:
- He said he wanted to go somewhere he’d be happy. How could anyone be happy playing alongside Lennie and managed by that cretinous cap wearing goblin?
- I would hope that Arsenal would rather eat a plate of their own sick than sell a player to Stoke after everything that’s gone on between the clubs in the last few seasons
- He can do much better than that.
- Stoke fans eat their own young
With the new season just around the corner we could see some movement on this before the week is out.
