After months of speculation, Danish striker Nicklas Bendtner has finally found a new club, signing for German side Wolfsburg on Thursday night, according to German newspaper Bild.

The Dane has reportedly signed a two-year contract and is expected to be presented at a press conference sometime this afternoon.

Since Bendtner’s contract with Arsenal expired on June 30, he has been rumoured to be on his way to a number of clubs, including Eintracht Frankfurt, Aston Villa and Olympiakos.

Proving himself
Bendtner can look forward to playing European football this season as Wolfsburg finished fifth in the Bundesliga last season and will be taking part in the Europa League.

But he will have to prove to his coach Dieter Hecking that his scandalous days are behind him and that he is ready to focus on his football.

During negotiations, the coach reportedly said: “It’s getting harder and harder. We look at the top shelf, but it’s empty now,” according to Bold.dk.

“Now we have to look a little bit further down.”
