Bendtner received his release from Arsenal on Friday, reports.

He was a seldom-used substitute over the just-completed BPL season, scoring twice. He's still just 26, so there's time to jump start his career somewhere else - but his form from the last few seasons has been maddening to watch. At one segment, Bendtner had a three-year drought between BPL goals.

Arsenal are investigating a reported incident at a nightclub in Denmark the night of the team's defeat to Bayern Munich in which Bendtner was alleged to have behaved improperly, reports the Daily Mail.

Various reports surfaced earlier this week about Bendtner's behavior Tuesday night, which the team has decided to investigate. Any discovery of poor behavior may be looked upon harshly by the club, especially for Bendtner, who has been considered surplus at the club for a while.

Bendtner is unavailable for Tuesday's Champions League game against Bayern Munich due to a knee injury, Oliver Kay of The Times reports.

With a healthy Olivier Giroud and Lukas Podolski, Bendtner was unlikely to see much playing time anyway.

Bendtner said again Tuesday that he is looking to leave Arsenal this summer, the Daily Mail reports.

Bendtner continues to hope for first team football, but he's firmly planted behind Olivier Giroud and Lukas Podolski, which doesn't give him a lot of opportunities in Premier League matches. As such, the 26-year-old will look for a new place to play.

Bendtner was ineffective in Friday's start against Coventry City, ultimately leaving the game at the 71-minute mark.

Bendtner missed the target on both of his attempts and as usual, looked a beat slower than his mates. When the Gunners return to Premier League play, Bendtner isn't likely to play much.

Bendtner (ankle) is in the starting XI for Friday's FA Cup match against Coventry City.

Bendtner has been out since injuring his ankle back on New Year's Day, but makes his return against a Coventry side that should be well overmatched by the Gunners' firepower. Bendtner remains quite limited in most fantasy formats, as Olivier Giroud continues to get the starts in Premier League play.

Bendtner (ankle) has trained this week and is expected to play in Friday's FA Cup match against Coventry, the Daily Star reports.

Bendtner was playing well for the Gunners before he went down with his ankle injury on New Year's Day and was expected to miss four-to-six weeks. He will beat that timetable, although his Premier League fantasy value remains limited with a healthy Olivier Giroud and Lukas Podolski.

Bendtner (ankle), who is out for Saturday's match against Fulham, may be able to return for Arsenal's FA Cup match against Coventry City on January 24, although he is more likely to return for their next Premier League match, which comes January 28 against Southampton.

Bendtner suffered his injury while scoring a goal against Cardiff City back on New Year's Day and he was expected to miss a few weeks, which he already has. Even when he does return to fitness, he isn't likely to get much playing time as long as Olivier Giroud is fit.
