Trade in personnel between former Arsenal players to Spurs may be more prolific than it once was but there can have been fewer scarier rumours than the one that started to emerge over the weekend.
Nicklas Bendtner, is a goal every four games man. Therefore, if you’d avoided the press over the weekend then you may currently be concerned over some of today’s headlines linking the Dane with a move to Spurs.
Here’s what Bendtner actually said,
“History is filled with examples of players moving between rival clubs and I can’t rule out clubs due to where I might have been in the past,” the player told bold.dk.
“It might not be the best idea but if the project matches my ambitions I would have to be interested.”
“I still have a great relationship with London, which is a city that I adore,” Bendtner added.
“I have a lot of friends in London and there are a lot of great clubs in London, so I wouldn’t rule out a return.”
Such comments are a worry but are no cause to start a major transfer rumour as some have done this morning. On the other hand, this is one instance where an official denial might be welcome.
