Arsenal have fined Nicklas Bendtner two week's wages for his unauthorised trip to Copenhagen last week and have completely ruled out any fleeting chance of a new contract thanks to his latest misdemeanour, according to The Telegraph.

Bendtner's turbulent Arsenal career took a new turn the worse last week, with the Danish striker deciding to fly home without permission before being embroiled in a drunken row with a taxi driver, enough to splash him all over the back pages in both countries for the wrong reasons.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger held talks with Bendtner on Tuesday to determine what punishment deserved for his antics, eventually settling on a fine which will see the forward pay around £100,000 for the shameful episode.

The 26-year-old's ill-discipline has finally put paid to any chance of a new contract at the Emirates, with his current deal expiring at the end of the campaign.

Wenger is now extremely unlikely to include Bendtner in his first-team plans for the rest of the campaign, despite having just two central strikers in Olivier Giroud and Yaya Sanogo at his disposal.

Bendtner will finally bring a close to nine incident-filled years at the Emirates this summer, with the former Sunderland and Juventus loanee now free to talk terms with any interested parties over a Bosman switch during the close season.
