Bendtner wants Arsenal exit

Bendtner has never hidden his frustration at a lack of regular
starting opportunities but he always stated he would keep pushing
for a place and not make his mind up about what to do next until
the summer. That moment has now arrived after the Gunners ended
their Premier League campaign in fourth following a 2-2 draw with
Fulham on Sunday. And Thomas Bendtner claims his son has now
informed Arsenal that he would like the club to listen to offers.
“Nicklas is 100 per cent open now to a change of clubs,” Thomas
Bendtner said in the Daily Mirror. “He has made his decision and he
has told it to Arsenal. Nicklas needs to be playing from the start
so, sadly, he must leave. “He wanted to finish the season first, so
no-one could say he didn’t fight for a first-team place right until
the end.” Bendtner’s father insists there will be a number of
options to consider, but he has dismissed speculation linking the
23-year-old with a move to Aston Villa. He said: “There is real
interest from both English and German clubs, and Bayern Munich were
after him, earlier. It’s very exciting. “But talk about Aston Villa
is rubbish. He has not met anyone from there.”
