Free agent, Nicklas Bendtner, has still not decided where his future lies, with his agent saying that a move to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga hasn't been completed. 

The Danish striker was released this summer following a hopeless spell at Arsenal that saw him progressively feature less on the team sheet, seeing him loaned out to Sunderland and Juventus in recent seasons.

Germany is the location most linked with Bendtner's future but an extended stay in the Premier League isn't off the cards, with rumours suggesting Sunderland and Crystal Palace may be interested in signing the 28-year-old.

Uncertainty

Tom Brookes, the player's representative, told Danish publication BT: "There is no agreement with Frankfurt, but there are many clubs who are interested in him and we will inform you very soon where he will continue his career.

"I am sure that we will talk more about the club when the transfer is done, and that will be soon. I am talking to a number of clubs and we are at the closing stages of the negotiations and sorting out the last few details. But I cannot say any more right now."

With thought to location, Brookes added: "There are options in England, but there are also clubs from other countries in Europe who have tabled offers."

The interview ultimately gives nothing away, with the saga being the most unpredictable transfer topic of the summer so far.

A Last Chance?

Since his Arsenal debut, Bendtner has never been able to show the scoring form that he promised, scoring just 24 goals in over 100 appearances for the Gunners. His form improved on loan at Sunderland, with 8 scored in 24 but no club have experienced the form he shows for his country. 

His international scoring record is impressive, up there with the very best strikers. In 56 games he has hit 24 goals, almost a goal every other game. 

It is proof that the Dane can find the net with regularity but has never found consistency week-in-week-out, only in the sporadic nature of the international calender.

Thus, this transfer gives him possibly his last chance to really make a name for himself, hoping to harness his goal scoring form on a domestic scale, proving the many detractors wrong.

With the lower expectations of playing for mid-table sides, he may flourish but its a move that needs strong consideration, getting everything perfect to create the climate that the striker feels suits his game best.
