Nicklas Bendtner – Arsenal (on loan at Sunderland)
The Danish centre forward hasn’t made a big impact on loan at Sunderland, although it remains to be seen how he fits into new manager Martin O’Neill’s plans. However, high wage demands and less than consistent form could make it difficult for Bendtner to find a club that will take a gamble on him.

<b>Gary Cahill </b><br/>
Chelsea have long been linked with a swoop for Bolton centre back Gary Cahill, and after agreeing a fee with the Trotters, the player has been holding talks with the club. But, there are stumbling blocks over the players' contract with the west Londoners unwilling to match his wage demands and the move could still yet collapse. Cahill is understood to want guarantees over his place in the first team.

Martin O'Neill returned to football knowing the pressure is mounting on managers all the time.

O'Neill: Bendtner must prove himself

Nicklas Bendtner looks like being given the opportunity to earn himself some better headlines tonight as Sunderland seek their second win under Martin O'Neill at QPR. Bendtner, who was dropped for Sunday's defeat at White Hart Lane along with Lee Cattermole after the pair were arrested on suspicion of causing criminal damage, is in line for a start as Connor Wickham is an injury doubt. O'Neill yesterday challenged the Dane to improve his behaviour off the pitch, and his goalscoring on it. Do that, and O'Neill hinted Sunderland might next summer seek to turn Bendtner's loan from Arsenal into a permanent move.

Gordon Colling: Trade unionist who helped pave the way for the changes that made Labour electable once more

Many newly- elected members joining the Parliamentary Labour Party for the first time are struck by the fact that often the opinions of politicians who enjoy a high media profile count for little, and that the opinions of some colleagues, virtually unknown to the public, count for a great deal. So it was, I found, in the mid-1980s, with the National Executive Committee of the Labour Party. Gordon Colling was by no means a household name but his opinions soon came to matter a great deal in the deliberations of the Party during those turbulent years.
