Gunners striker could make move permanent – report

Published Add your comment

Sunderland are already considering making Nicklas Bendtner a permanent member of the squad, after the Arsenal striker moved to the club on loan, according to the Sunderland Echo.

Bendtner had been on the lookout for a move, after struggling to get regular selection at the Gunners.

And after deals with numerous European clubs fell through, the 23-year-old sealed a loan move to Sunderland on deadline day.

Steve Bruce had admitted he was desperate to add another striker to the Sunderland set-up, and Arsenal were equally hoping to save on Bendtner’s wages.

The deal between Sunderland and Arsenal for the striker was sealed literally minutes before the end of deadline day, and now the Black Cats are reportedly planning on making the deal more permanent, if Bendtner performs at his best.

Bruce was particularly excited about the new addition to the Sunderland squad, with Craig Bellamy, Peter Crouch and Patrick Helmes also connected to possible deals on the last day.

Arsenal will most certainly be looking to move Bendtner on from the club permanently, and now Bruce is just waiting to see if the Dane can deliver on his promises.
