Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner joins Juventus on a season-long loan

Nicklas Bendtner has completed his move to Italian champions Juventus from Arsenal on a season-long loan.

Bendtner, who spent last season on loan at Sunderland, has slipped further down the pecking order at the Emirates Stadium since the arrival of Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud.

Juve turned their attention to Bendtner after missing out on Manchester United's Dimitar Berbatov.

The 24-year-old joined Arsenal in 2005 and will be offloaded for around £5million.
