Bendtner’s contract with Wolfsburg was terminated with immediate effect Monday, the club reports.
So comes to an end a tumultuous relationship between Danish striker Bendtner and Wolfsburg. The contract was intended to keep Bendtner with the club until June 2017 but was terminated early by mutual consent, as expectations were never achieved for either party. The Danish forward’s most successful season was in 2011-2012 when he was on loan with English side Sunderland and scored eight goals and five assists in 28 matches. He has since made brief unsuccessful appearances with Juventus and Arsenal before landing at Wolfsburg in 2014. Since joining the German side, he has only scored nine goals in 47 appearances. Although many clubs are in need of a striker, Bendtner may find fewer potential suitors than in prior years due to his reputation for oversleeping and missing training sessions. Wolfsburg may be active in the summer transfer market searching for a replacement up front to complement Bas Dost.
