BY foxsports • August 15, 2014

Wolfsburg have completed the signing of former Arsenal forward Nicklas Bendtner on a three-year contract.

The 26-year-old, who also had loan spells with Birmingham, Sunderland and Juventus, will provide Wolves coach Dieter Hecking with an additional attacking option for their Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and Europa League campaigns.

"We want to play a good role in all three competitions this season, and to do this we need players who already know what this kind of challenge is all about," Hecking said.

"Nicklas embodies precisely the kind of striker we were looking for. He fits the profile and is going to strengthen our squad."

Wolfsburg director of sport Klaus Allofs has every faith that Bendtner, who scored 32 goals in 136 Premier League appearances, will make the German club even stronger this term.

"He's in his prime and, although his career has not always gone smoothly, he's still been able to gain plenty of international experience," he said.

"With his ability, he's going to raise the quality of our attack."
