Sporting deny Bendtner talk

Sporting Clube de Portugal sporting director Carlos Freitas has dismissed reports Nicklas Bendtner is set to join.

Arsene Wenger revealed last week that Bendtner had been given time off to "to sort out his future" and the Arsenal striker was photographed in Portugal.

It was widely reported that he was due to complete a £9 million move this weekend, but Sporting have now dismissed the claims.

"There is no truth in this news," Freitas told a press conference. "Bendtner is just as close to joining Sporting as Higuain, Drogba or Krkic. It is pure fiction."
