Sunderland boss Steve Bruce finally got his man tonight when he clinched a season-long loan deal for Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner.

The 23-year-old has clinched a temporary move to the Stadium of Light after being told he was not part of Arsene Wenger's plans.

Bruce will hope he will bring the goals his side has been lacking to date this season and provide a foil for Asamoah Gyan, who himself was the subject of interest from Turkey during the final days of the transfer window.
