Nottingham Forest's chairman has confirmed the signing of former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner on a two-year deal.

The Denmark international was a free agent after Bundesliga side Wolfsburg terminated his contract in April.

As a result, the Championship outfit managed to rope in Bendtner even after the closure of the summer transfer window.

Nottingham Forest chairman Fawaz Al Hasawi revealed the news of Bendtner’s capture on social media.

“Please welcome Nicklas Bendtner who has joined NFFC on a two-year deal”, he said via Twitter.


The Reds will be the striker’s fourth club in England, with the 28-year-old previously turning out for Arsenal, Birmingham City and Sunderland.

Bendtner, who has 73 caps and 29 goals for Denmark to his name, started his senior career at Arsenal.

While at the Emirates Stadium, he had loan spells at Birmingham, Sunderland and Juventus, before joining Wolfsburg permanently in the summer of 2014.

However, Bendtner’s time at the German club did not turn out as planned and the forward will now be keen to revive his career in England.
