The Danish website Ekstra Bladet claims that Nicklas Bendtner has agreed to halve his previous salary to sign for Nottingham Forest.

Bendtner, a free agent since leaving Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg in April, will sign a two-year deal at the City Ground on Wednesday, according to the report, which also suggests the striker could be unveiled at a 12:30 (GMT) press conference alongside Mustapha Carayol.

And the 28-year-old, who played for Forest's upcoming League Cup opponents Arsenal at the peak of his powers, will reportedly pick up around £25,000 a week on his return to English football.

Another Danish website, BT (via the Express), reports that Bendtner will sign a two-year deal with Philippe Montanier's side.

Bendtner could make his Forest debut against Aston Villa at the weekend, almost a decade on from his last Championship appearance on loan to the Villans' local rivals Birmingham City.

The 72-cap Danish international scored 11 goals and made another seven as the Blues were promoted as runners-up that season.
