Sunderland boss Steve Bruce is convinced he can get the best out of Nicklas Bendtner.

The on-loan Arsenal striker has something to prove this season, says Bruce.

"There's no doubt that he has terrific ability and we might just have got him at the right time," said the Sunderland manager.

"He's got something to prove and a real hunger to show people just how good he is. Maybe he has lost his way a little bit over the last couple of years but I'm convinced this is the right move for him."
