Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt have ended their pursuit of Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner after the two parties couldn't agree personal terms.
The German club's chairman revealed on Thursday that the deal had fell through and he was adamant that it was down to personal terms rather than anything involving the Premier League side.
It was believed that a fee estimated around £4million had been agreed between Arsenal and Frankfurt, but after holding advanced talks with the Danish striker, the German side have now decided to pull the plug on the deal after Bendtner's wage was too high for them to pay.
Despite the move breaking down, it is believed that Bendtner was keen on the move to the German outfit after he is only seen as a back-up player at the Emirates Stadium, but it now appears that his wage demands have ruined his chances of the move to the Bundesliga.
The striker has been sent on-loan by Arsenal twice in the last two years, once to Premier League side Sunderland and once to Italian side Juventus, but the Dane failed to make an impact during both loan spells.
Frankfurt's club chairman revealed on the club's official website that the deal for Bendtner has been cancelled.
He stated: "We would like to thank Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger for the constructive conversations and the high level of cooperation.
"There was interest from all three parts, but in the end it did not match up."
Arsenal still expect Bendtner to leave this summer, but his wage-demands may stall a future move as well.
The Dane currently has one year left on his contract at the Emirates Stadium.
