It feels like it`s been a good few years since Arsenal first started trying to offload Nicklas Bendtner [TheGreatestStrikerWhoEverLived/TheTurdThatWon`tFlush] and so far we`ve yet been able to accomplish that task.
As the transfer window was drawing to a close yesterday it seemed as though Bendtner might be leaving the club once and for all, however a loan move for Demba Ba fell through leaving us with only Olivier Giroud and Yaya Sanogo as proper striking options, so Arsene Wenger had no choice but to bring him back into the fold.
Today however, Bendtner has issued a statement claiming that he will do his best for the club for the rest of the season.
'It's no secret that Arsenal and myself had agreed that I could leave the club during the 2013 summer transfer window subject to an agreement between all parties,' read a statement from Bendtner's agent.
'An agreement had been reached with more than one club this week but as Arsenal were unable to secure the services of another striker, they reserved their right to not sanction any deal to be concluded."
'Naturally, I was very disappointed as I was looking forward to a new challenge, with a new club and a fresh start in English football."
'Many things have been said about where my future lies after many years at Arsenal, the truth is I just want to play football which is when I'm happiest and Arsenal is a fantastic environment for any professional to ply their trade.'
'I still feel very strongly about Arsenal Football Club and, following positive talks with the manager, I am looking forward to working hard to regain full fitness and doing my very best to help to the team and the manager fulfil our objectives and ambitions this season,'
'I've learnt a lot from my loan experiences at Sunderland and Juventus, and I want to assure all Arsenal fans that I will give everything I have to contribute to what I believe will be a successful season for the club.'
I think if Bendtner can keep his ego in check for 6 months he should be adequate back-up until the January transfer window.
