Crystal Palace and West Brom have emerged as potential destinations for Nicklas Bendtner.
We all know the story at this point. The player says he’s going to leave early in the summer. Then, for some unknown reason which surely has nothing to do with his wage demands, a series of transfers reach the point where you think it’s almost going to happen but then fails to materialise.
Then, on transfer deadline day, he joins someone at the last minute – possibly dressed as a 70s porn star/Lothario. You can say this for him: he’s certainly consistent [insert your own obvious gag here].
Now, reports have suggested that West Brom are looking at him after Nicolas Anelka told them he wants to retire, while Crystal Palace, having already successfully shopped at Arsene’s Outlet Store, fancy a go of TGSTEL too.
Bendtner’s international manager, Morten Olsson, ruled him out of a call up to his national side, saying, “He will not take part in the national side until he finds himself a new club.”
Seven days and a few hours remain of the transfer window. Bendtner likes to play chicken with the deadline, so let’s see what happens.
