Sunderland capture Bendtner on loan

Sunderland boss Steve Bruce has confirmed that the club have sealed a year-long loan move for Nicklas Bendtner from Arsenal.

Bendtner, 23, has clinched a temporary move to the Stadium of Light after being told he was not part of Arsene Wenger's plans.

Bruce will hope he will bring the goals his side has been lacking to date this season and provide a foil for Asamoah Gyan, who himself was the subject of interest from Turkey during the final days of the transfer window.

The deal re-unites a player and a manager who worked together during their time at Birmingham.

Bruce said: ''I've had the privilege of working with Nicklas previously. I had him as an 18 year-old and he helped clinch promotion for Birmingham.

''He's an outstanding talent and is a big, physical presence who will lead the line magnificently for us.''

Bendtner is the third frontman to arrive at the club this summer following the captures of youngsters Connor Wickham and Ji Dong-won, who Bruce believes will be big players for the club in the years to come.
