Arsenal’s third-choice striker Nicklas Bendtner has confirmed in an interview with Danish website Ekstra Bladet that he plans to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer.

The 26-year-old’s contract expires at the end of the season - and he fully expects to leave the north London outfit after nine years at the club.

When asked whether he believed he would still be at Arsenal next season, Bendtner replied: “It's not the plan. It is intended that I should try something else.”

The Denmark international added: “I am open to all countries. It's not that I think I should be in England. The most important thing is that I get to play. It is imperative that I get real playing time.”

The out-of-favour striker refused to rule out the possibility of joining a club in the Russian Premier League, although he also stated: “I have an expectation of what I want and desire”.

Bendtner was expected to leave Arsenal last summer following a disappointing loan spell with Serie A champions Juventus.

However, a move failed to materialise, which meant the striker would stay at the Emirates Stadium until his contract expires this summer.

Bendtner has scored two Premier League goals for the Gunners this season, but finds himself behind Olivier Giroud and Yaya Sanogo in the pecking order.

Arsenal fans: will you miss Bendtner? Should Arsene Wenger offer him a new contract?
