Nicklas Bendtner says he is “very disappointed” not to seal a move away from Arsenal this summer – but has recommitted himself to the Gunners’ cause.

The Denmark international was reported to be on the brink of a move to Crystal Palace on deadline day but the 25-year-old’s switch across London never materialised.

Bendtner had also been linked with a move to Hull City earlier this week, with his former Birmingham City manager Steve Bruce keen to sign the out-of-favour Arsenal forward.

However, the Dane revealed his plans to move away from The Emirates were scuppered after the Gunners failed to bring in a striker during the summer transfer window.

A statement from Bendtner read: “An agreement had been reached with more than one club this week but as Arsenal were unable to secure the services of another striker, they reserved their right to not sanction any deal to be concluded,” reads the statement.

“Naturally, I was very disappointed as I was looking forward to a new challenge, with a new club and a fresh start in English football.

“I still feel very strongly about Arsenal Football Club and following positive talks with the manager, I am looking forward to working hard to regain full fitness and doing my very best to help to the team and the manager fulfil our objectives and ambitions this season.”
