Bendtner joins Sunderland on loan from Arsenal

BY foxsports • August 31, 2011

Denmark striker Nicklas Bendtner has joined Sunderland on loan from Premier League rival Arsenal for the rest of the season.

The 23-year-old Bendtner is the third forward to join Sunderland this summer, following the signings of South Korea international Ji Dong-won and England Under-21 player Connor Wickham.

Sunderland manager Steve Bruce, whose side has picked up one point from its first three league games, says ''he's an outstanding talent and is a big, physical presence who will lead the line magnificently for us.''

Bendtner has been at Arsenal since 2004.
