Nicklas Bendtner has reiterated that he would leave Arsenal for a permanent place at Sunderland, despite his desire to play in the Champions League.

The striker was quick to clear up rumours that he said if he was not playing in the Champions League, he would not be at Sunderland as a 'misinterpretation from Danish to English.'

"I've never hidden the fact that I'm very keen to play in the Champions League again," he said.

"As a player you should have ambition - I'm sure every player you speak to wants to play in the Champions League. But I haven't ruled out staying here at Sunderland."

Bendtner, who is three months into his season-long loan with the Black Cats, has made it clear he has no intention of returning to the Gunners next season and just wants to enjoy his time at The Stadium of Light.

Sunderland manager Steve Bruce has also made it clear he will fight to keep the Dane at the club, but admitted the better Bendtner plays the harder it will be.

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

Bendtner finds himself in a good position and the striker has stated he will 'see what happens in the summer', seemingly keeping his options open.
