Well that’s nice isn’t it, apart from he doesn’t want to return if he isn’t guaranteed a starting place.

If he can get in the starting lineup therefore he’ll be off like a bolt.

Thrilling news to Steve Bruce and Blues fans no doubt. And herein lies the problems of training up other clubs players for them.

Bendtner is with us until at least January but the best case scenario is that he’ll be off at the end of the season.

Speaking to Ritzau Bendtner said:

‘It’s Arsenal who decide.

‘But I know that they will not call me back unless they have at least got a place for me in the A squad.

‘I will not go back to play for the reserves.

‘The least that I should get is a place on the bench.’

Now that the smell of arrogance has passed everyone by do you think Little Nicky should remember that although he’s making a name for himself, he hasn’t made it yet and comments like that are hardly likely to endear him to either Blues fans or anyone connected with Arsenal.
