Report: Bendtner could be on the move again as Fenerbahce loan rumours surface

The former Arsenal striker could be heading to Turkey, having fallen out of favour with current Bundesliga side Wolfsburg, according to new speculation.

Nicklas Bendtner’s time in Germany may already be coming to an end, with Turkish sports website Tumspor claiming the Dane may move to Fenerbahce on loan for the rest of the season.

The 27-year-old moved to Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga last summer, after his contract with Arsenal expired, and has so far played 13 times for his Volkswagen-backed employers, scoring twice in the process.

However recent months have seen the Denmark international fall out of favour at the club and Bendtner did not feature for the Wolves during a recent friendly with South African side Ajax Cape Town.

Despite being named among the substitutes for the match, the ex-Gunners star failed to make an appearance while Thomas Heite Tweeted a picture of the Dane in what appeared to be deep discussion with the Wolfsburg manager Dietar Heckling during the pre-match warm-up.

Wolfsburg sporting executive Klaus Allofs also alluded to potential unrest during an interview with Bild.

"You can't judge a player in our current situation, but of course we want to see progress in the upcoming weeks and months,” he told the news provider.

And the Wolves may not be looking to move the striker on if fresh reports from Turkey are to be believed.

Bendtner has endured a stop-start career to date, having spent time on loan at Birmingham and Sunderland during his days with Arsenal.

The Dane also moved to Juventus on a season-long loan, with the deal giving the Bianconeri the option to buy the Scandinavian star outright at the conclusion of the campaign.

However a thigh injury hampered his progress in Italy, with Bendtner playing just 11 times for the Old Lady without scoring a goal before returning to north London after Juventus opted against making the move permanent.

He could now look to rebuild his career yet again with a switch to Fenerbahce, though news of this move remains speculation at this stage.
