Show me the money! Arsenal striker Bendtner ready to join Russian revolution
Nicklas Bendtner is ready to turn his back on the Premier League with the striker eyeing a lucrative move to Russia this summer.
The Denmark international is on-loan at Sunderland from Arsenal but has failed to make an impression, scoring just three goals in 18 appearances so far this season.
Russian revolution: On-loan Sunderland striker Nicklas Bendtner admits he'd consider a move to Russia
The 24-year-old's faces an uncertain future with his Gunners contract expiring at the end of the season.
But Bendtner has admitted he would consider joining the Russian revolution should he become a free agent.
'There are a lot of very strong players going to Russia, players who previously wouldn't have done so,' he said.
'They play great football there.'
Up for grabs: Bendtner's Arsenal contract expires this summer
Bendtner's Arsenal team-mate Andrey Arshavin recently returned to his old club Zenit St Petersburg while Christopher Samba quit Blackburn last week to sign for mega-rich Anzhi Makachkala, managed by Guus Hiddink.
'I am fine for the moment and I will look at the options available to me when the time comes,' Bendtner added.
'You can never say never in football.'
