DONE DEAL: Copenhagen completes the signing of Arsenal forward

Copenhagen complete signing of ex-Arsenal centre-forward Nicklas Bendtner with a free deal. Shirts were flying off shelves this week at such a rapid rate that a full run of all sizes were officially declared as completely sold out.

Denmark international signed on the dotted line this week and sealed a move to his hometown club until the end of the campaign. Nicklas made the switch from Rosenborg, and fans immediately surged to the club shop to frantically get their hands on his No.32 shirt.

Within the first 24 hours of Bendtner’s announcement, the club’s official website crashed as fans scrambled to see images of the new boy and place their orders.

Danish club were forced to take to social media to apologise and tell supporters there were simply no more shirts left after such demand, but that more would soon be arriving for those who missed out on an opportunity to buy. Martin Nohr, manager of the club’s official megastore, admitted Copenhagen had ‘never sold so many’ shirts in 24 hours.

The Danish striker has acquired a cult following since his days at Emirates Stadium, where fans dubbed him ‘Lord’, amid him failing to establish himself as a top-class centre-forward. That nickname has stuck with him throughout his career, which has taken in stops at Birmingham, Sunderland, Juventus, Wolfsburg, and more.

Last campaign the 31-year-old striker featured 18 times in the league for Rosenborg, scoring five times and proving three assists. Nicklas also hit the back of the net once in the Europa League, during his seven matches for the side.
