Wolfsburg have officially confirmed the signing of striker Nicklas Bendtner on a free transfer.

Bendtner has penned a three-year contract with the Bundesliga club, who had been looking to boost their attacking options this summer.

The 26-year-old could only feature in nine Premier League games for Arsenal last term and will be aiming to clock up regular first team football for the Wolves.

"Nicklas Bendtner is a striker in his prime, who in his career, which has not always been very straightforward, has collected a lot of international experience and our attacking quality is increased even further with his skills", Wolfsburg sporting director Klaus Allofs told the club's site.


And club coach Dieter Hecking added: "We want to play a good role in all three competitions this season, but we need players who are aware of these challenges and are used to them.


"Nicklas embodies exactly the type of striker we were looking for."

Bendtner made a total of 136 Premier League appearances, for Arsenal and while on loan, scoring 32 goals.
