Nicklas Bendtner Is On His Way To Yet Another Club
The transfer window so far has actually been pretty entertaining for once with a number of big name and big money moves. But now we're truly blessed as Lord Nicklas Bendtner is set to join in the fun.
You can forget Pierre Emerick Aubameyang being the most exciting transfer of the last week of the window, hell you can even forget about Alexis Sanchez and Philippe Coutinho battling over who is the biggest transfer of 2018.
With clubs starting to panic across Europe that they've wasted most of the month complaining that it's January and they just want a holiday they've all suddenly realised there's only days left of the transfer window.

Step forward a move for Nicklas Bendtner. The Dane is actually in one of the best moments of his career right now having been the top scorer in the Norwegian league last season.
According to L'Equipe, via Get Football News France, the former Arsenal mans 19 goals for Rosenberg have attracted the interest of Ligue 1 side Bordeaux with new manager Gus Poyet's team entering negotiations for the Lord.
The report claims that Bordeaux decided to turn their attentions to Bendtner after their first choice signing moved elsewhere. The French club wanted to sign Diafra Sakho but the former West Ham striker moved to Rennes for £8 million yesterday.
Poyet's side were also apparently interested in another Danish forward, Martin Braithwaite, but the club have dropped that interest because Middlesbrough would only be interested in selling him whereas Bordeaux wanted a loan deal.
The move for Bendtner is likely to also be a loan move with the club not as confident as the manager that the 29 year old is exactly what they need. The player could be eager for the move to make sure his form is good going into the World Cup this summer.
Since leaving the Premier League in 2014 the former Juve loanee has played for Wolfsburg and Nottingham Forest before heading to Scandinavia to sign for Rosenberg last season.
It's a shame that Chelsea never made a move for him this month considering he's taller than six foot and has Premier League experience.
