Nicklas Bendtner facing Arsenal punishment

Arsene Wenger has intimated that Nicklas Bendtner will be on his way out of Arsenal at the end of the season.

Bendtner, who has had loan spells at Birmingham, Sunderland and Juventus in recent years, has started only one Premier League game for the Gunners this term and has not featured since February 2.

The striker has been accused of drunkenly threatening a taxi driver in Copenhagen on Tuesday, a trip that was not sanctioned by Arsenal, on the same evening that his team-mates were knocked out of the Champions League by Bayern Munich.

While Arsenal are investigating claims he threatened a taxi driver, Wenger has confirmed the 26-year-old will be fined for travelling to his native city without the permission of the club.
“Honestly I don’t know really what happened because I haven’t spoken to him,” Wenger said. “The only thing that is for sure is he had nothing to do in Copenhagen.

“Nobody gave him any permission to go to Copenhagen and he will be fined for that. For the rest, he has created some trouble there I don’t know, I will speak to him.”
Bendtner was close to leaving Arsenal last summer and Wenger has hinted that he will not be at the Emirates Stadium next season.
“He is at the end of his contract at the end of the season,” Wenger stated.
