THE INCOMPARABLE NICKLAS BENDTNER, released by Arsenal at the end of last season, has joined Bundesliga side Wolfsburg.

The 26 year-old Dane played only nine games for the Gunners last season after returning to the Premier League club following extended loan spells with Birmingham City, Sunderland and Italian champions Juventus.

Capped 56 times by Denmark, Bendtner has scored 24 international goals since making his debut as an 18-year-old in 2006.

He becomes Wolfsburg’s second major signing of the close season in the last week after the club secured the two-year loan signing of French international midfielder Josuha Guilavogui from Atletico Madrid.

Wolfsburg, German champions in 2009, kick off their season away to reigning champions Bayern Munich next week.
