Nicklas Bendtner: Free agent after leaving Arsenal this summer

Nicklas Bendtner: Free agent after leaving Arsenal this summer

The online bookmaker were offering odds of 16/1 on the Denmark international heading to Villa Park before seeing a sudden run of bets on Tuesday night, prompting them to cut the price to 1/8.

Bendtner is available on a free transfer after being released by Arsenal this summer following 10 years with the north London club, scoring 47 goals in 171 appearances.

Hull and Crystal Palace are considered the main rivals to secure the 26-year-old’s services at 10/1 and 12/1 respectively, while a return to Sunderland, where he spent a season on loan during the 2012/13 season, is a 14/1 chance.

Sky Bet’s Chris Spicer said: “We had lacked a clear favourite in the market on Bendtner’s next club ever since he was released by Arsenal, with Hull the soft favourites initially.

“However, Villa have attracted nearly 90 per cent of all stakes now, with the majority coming in the last 24 hours including one three-figure bet at odds of 1/4.”

Roy will beat him to death with his own leg.

ou spend £200 million in one year and you say 3 years to win the title, I don't think the Man U board signed you to win the title in 3 years after shelling out that sort of cash. Spending that sort of money you should be challenging for the title in this season, not getting an early excuse in to try appeasing the fans and board.
