Former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner has returned to England, signing a two-year deal with Championship side Nottingham Forest as a free agent.
Forest made 13 new signings over the summer ahead of the 2016/2017 season, with Bendtner being the latest addition to the squad.
Currently seventh in the league, with three wins and two defeats, Nottingham Forest manager Philippe Montanier will be hoping Bendtner provides the impetus for a brilliant campaign ahead.

The Danish star spent seven years with the Gunners after he was promoted from the youth ranks in 2005. However, despite manager Arsene Wenger believing in his potential, Bendtner never really settled to life in north London.
Making 108 league appearances for the club, scoring a paltry 24 goals, the Premier League heavyweights decided to part companies at the expiration of his contract in 2014.
He later joined Bundesliga side Wolfsburg and had a horrid time in Germany, amassing only three goals in 31 league games for Die Wolfe in two years.
The German club then terminated his contract in April 2016, a year earlier than the validity of his deal, making him a free agent this summer.
The Dane signed for Forest just in time, as they are scheduled to face Arsenal in the third round of the League Cup on September 20, and Bendtner undoubtedly will be in the squad to face his former employers.
Upon his arrival, Arsenal posted a tweet, wishing the striker good luck for the new challenge in his professional career, but also reminded him of the clash ahead, advising him to not score in that game.
However, the act didn’t go down well with the Gunners faithful as they vented their anger by urging the account to remove the tweet immediately.
Sadly for Arsenal, there are plenty more tweets with the same message in response to theirs welcoming Bendtner back to England.
On the international stage, Bendtner's record is a little more promising. He has scored 29 goals in 72 caps for Denmark since making his senior debut back in 2006.
