Denmark manager Morten Olsen has told Nicklas Bendtner he needs to leave Arsenal.

Bendtner has been told he can quit North London this summer as the Gunners continue to trim the surplus from their squad, but his astronomical wage demands have so far stalled moves to Malaga and Eintracht Frankfurt.

"He will not take part in the national side until he finds himself a new club," said Olsen of the forward, whose agent yesterday met with Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway.
