Update: Sunderland Complete 1 Year Loan Deal Of Nicklas Bendtner
Sunderland have won the race to sign featured player Nicklas Bendtner on a season long loan. The deal re-ignites Bendtner’s association with Sunderland manager Steve Bruce, who took Nicklas to St.Andrews in 2007, which was a really succesful period for him where he started as a centre forward and got 14 goals along with several assists in the Coca-Cola Championship. This time around NB will get an opportunity to play a season week in week out in the EPL with The Mackems’.
Steve Bruce said:
I’ve had the privilege of working with Nicklas previously. I had him as an 18-year-old and he helped clinch promotion for Birmingham.
He’s an outstanding talent and is a big, physical presence who will lead the line magnificently for us.
