Ex-Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner signs for Nottingham Forest


Danish striker Nicklas Bendtner has completed a transfer to Nottingham Forest, according to the Daily Mail.

The ex-Arsenal forward has a cult following almost unrivalled in world football, who refer to him as ‘Lord Bendtner’.

In 2015, Danish celebrity tabloid Se og Hør bought him a square foot of land in Scotland to bestow him the title of “Lord”, and according to his agent, he considered it a “fun gimmick”.

He is one of the more eccentric characters in football, and he will be seen in England once again, after he agreed a two-year deal with the Championship club following the expiry of his contract at German side Wolfsburg.

Upon signing for Wolfsburg in 2014, Managing director Klaus Allofs described him as “a striker at the best age, who already was able to gather a lot of international experience in his career, which did not always run in a straight line.”

Bendtner managed nine goals in forty-seven appearances for Wolfsburg, and was let go at the end of last season.

Bendtner becomes the 12th new arrival at the City Ground following the appointment of Philippe Montanier as head coach over the summer.

He scored 24 league goals in 108 appearances for the Gunners and has netted 29 times in 72 outings for his country.

And there could be a reunion with his former club as Arsenal and Forest were drawn against each other in the third round of the EFL Trophy.
