Bendtner commits to Arsenal

Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner has handed manager Arsene Wenger some much-needed good news.

With Alex Hleb's agent declaring the midfielder is ready to follow Mathieu Flamini out of Emirates stadium, Bendtner pledged his commitment to the Gunners in the wake of interest from Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and Werder Bremen.

"I have heard about these offers from Germany but Nicklas will stay at Arsenal," said Thomas Bendtner, his father. "The only way things could be different was if something unexpected should happen, such as him being moved totally outside of the team, but it's difficult to see that happening as he is playing right now."

Bendtner, 20, has made 39 appearances this season, 16 as a starter, and has scored nine goals.

"I've always said that Arsenal is my club and that's where I want to play my football," he said. "When you look at my season and the way it has developed, I see no reason why I should want to change Arsenal with any other club."
