Nicklas Bendtner has rejected the chance to leave Arsenal in the January transfer window because they failed to sign a new striker, reports the Metro.

Turkish outfit Trabzonspor made an enquiry about Bendtner's availability earlier today after failing to agree a deal with Newcastle's Papiss Cisse.

But Bendtner has told officials that he has no interest in leaving the Emirates, knowing that Wenger's lack of options will give him plenty of opportunity to play between now and the end of the season.

It's a remarkable turnaround for the 26-year-old, who earlier this season, declared his desire to leave north London as soon as possible.

Having spent two years on loan to Sunderland and Juventus, Bendtner returned to Arsenal in the summer but was expected to leave permanently.

Wenger failed to bring in a replacement, forcing Bendtner to stay until at least the January window. But, again, Wenger hasn't been able to sign a striker meaning Bendtner will be a Gunner until the summer at least.

With Wenger failing to agree deals for the likes of Julian Draxler, Miroslav Klose and Mirko Vucinic, it leaves Arsenal with just two strikers in the form on Bendtner and Olivier Giroud.
