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.

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.
