Sunderland manager Steve Bruce believes Nicklas Bendtner's rise in form could be detrimental to his sides chances of signing the Danish striker.

Bendtner has netted twice since his loan move to The Black Cats from Arsenal, but has scored five goals in five games for his country.

Bruce has made it clear they want to make the strikers move permanent.

"I have made no secret we would love to sign him," said the boss.

"However, it is going to be one of those again, the better he does, certainly internationally, (the more) people are looking at him."

Even though it comes as a worry for the Sunderland boss, he praised the Dane's performances.

"I spoke to (Denmark coach) Morten Olsen on Thursday and he was delighted with his performances and, I have to say, so am I for us.

"He has done terrifically well, so let's hope he keeps doing that."

Sunderland host Wigan on Saturday when all eyes will be on Bendtner in hope that his recent good form will continue.
