Bendtner closing in on Bundesliga move

The Dane is looking for a fresh start after enduring some tumultuous seasons at Arsenal, Sunderland and Juventus

The neverending Nicklas Bendtner transfer saga looks to be finally nearing a conclusion after a German newspaper wrote that he would be signing for Eintracht Frankfurt sometime this week.

Frankfurter Rundschau newspaper wrote today that the lanky Dane would pen his signature on a contact this week with the surprise Bundesliga outfit from last season.

Frankfurt has reportedly come to terms with Arsenal for an estimated 32 million kroner deal for the Danish international, although it is unsure whether Arsenal would continue to foot part of Bendtner's wages as part of the deal.

The move would mean that Bendtner would satisfy his well-publicised desire to move to a club playing in European competition, as Frankfurt will be taking part in the Europa League thanks to a solid sixth-placed finish last season.

Bendtner was reportedly seen in Frankfurt over the weekend, and the Frankfurt coach, Armin Veh, said that he was “very relaxed” about the situation.

Bendtner, still only 25, will hope that a permanent move away from Arsenal may help spell an end to a few troubled seasons that have included him being nicked for drink driving, banned from the national team and failing to score a single goal while on loan at Italian giants Juventus.
