Nicklas Bendtner: Wanted in Germany

Nicklas Bendtner: Wanted in Germany

Bendtner is a free agent after leaving Arsenal and he has been linked with a number of sides, but Frankfurt, who tried to sign the player last season, remain on his trail.

The 26-year-old is reported to favour staying in England, with Villa now favourites for his signature, but Frankfurt remain keen.

"We already had good rounds of talk with (Nicklas) Bendtner last season," general manager Bruno Hubner has told Hessischer Rundfunk.

"His name is in our head and he can well imagine doing a deal with Eintracht Frankfurt as far as I am concerned.

"There is no deal and nothing concrete, still Nicklas Bendtner is definitely a transfer option." 

Meanwhile, Frankfurt are also said to be closing on a deal for Fiorentina's Khouma El Hadji Babacar, who spent last season on loan at Modena.

The 21-year-old's agent Patrick Bastianelli said: "Eintracht Frankfurt is out to sign Khouma Babacar. Bruno Hubner has been in negotiations with Fiorentina as well as with me.

"The club (Eintracht Frankfurt) has a good new manager in Thomas Schaaf. Thomas Schaaf has proved at Werder Bremen he is a quality manager!"

Why anyone would sign this self confident to the point of delusion waster is beyond me

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
