Free agent Nicklas Bendtner receives German contract offer

Eintracht Frankfurt have confirmed they have submitted a bid for former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner.

Free agent Nicklas Bendtner, who was released by erstwhile employer Arsenal at the end of the season, has been offered a contract to join Bundesliga outfit Eintracht Frankfurt.

The club's executive chairman Heribert Bruchhagen confirmed the contractual offer to Bild: "We have offered a contract to Nicklas Bendtner and we will have a good team for the new season in Bundesliga."

Bendtner has been linked to a plethora of clubs since becoming unattached, as Hull City, Crystal Palace, Burnley and Leicester City were all linked within the last six weeks.

Earlier in the week, Aston Villa were said to "be in talks" with the Denmark international.

Bendtner spent ten years at Arsenal and became a much maligned figure during his stay, however, statistics indicate that even when he was seldom used - like last season - he was still able to make himself useful with the few minutes he was afforded.

In 156 Premier League minutes of action last term, he unleashed a shot every 19 minutes, scored twice, created a goal-scoring opportunity every 39 minutes and was accurate with 81% of his passing.

At a club at the level of Villa or Frankfurt, he could prove a good buy considering the only expenses would be his wages.
