Sebastian Larsson is delighted to have former Arsenal teammate Nicklas Bendtner with him at Sunderland.

This is the third time Bendtner has followed Larsson to a club after previous spells together at Arsenal and Birmingham City.

Larsson joked: "Wherever I go, Nicklas seems to turn up as well. Seriously though, it's nice to see him here. He's a good lad - and he's a big guy who will get on the end of my crosses."

Bendtner - who scored twice for Denmark in midweek - has been accused of having a big ego. But boss Steve Bruce insisted: "He is definitely not a bad apple, he's just nuts. All the great players have that edge and I detect a hunger about him which I like."
