Bendtner yet to decide on future at Sunderland or Arsenal
Nicklas Bendtner, the Arsenal striker who has spent the season on loan at Premier League rivals Sunderland, says he has not yet decided where his future will lie at the end of the current campaign, the Sunderland Echo has reported. The striker added he will evaluate his options after the forthcoming European Championships.
Bendtner has scored seven times in 26 games for Sunderland this season, including striking during the Black Cats’ last outing, a 3-3 draw at the home of title-chasing Manchester City. Before moving to Wearside Bendtner spent six years under Arsene Wenger, netting on 43 occasions and making 157 appearances.
The Denmark international also had a loan spell at Birmingham City in 2006-07, scoring 13 goals in 44 games for the Midlands side then managed by Steve Bruce, who also brought him to Sunderland before being sacked to make way for Martin O’Neill.
The Sunderland Echo quotes Bendtner as saying: “I still have two years left with Arsenal, it isn’t just up to me. Ideally it would only be in my hands, but I’m just waiting to see in the summer. We’ve got the Euros, then, in the summer after the Euros, we will see where we are.”
