Nicklas Bendtner has vowed never to return to Arsenal after sealing his loan switch to Sunderland.

The Denmark international secured a season-long loan move to Sunderland on transfer deadline day after finding himself out-of-favour at the Emirates.

The 23-year-old striker believes he has not been given a fair chance in Arsene Wenger's side ever since he had a car crash two years ago.

Bendtner is now planning for life after Arsenal as he has no intention of returning to the club once his loan deal expires.

"I will never go back to Arsenal. If I can have it my way, I will never play for them again," Bendtner is quoted as saying in The Sun.

"After my car accident I never really got the chance to earn a spot in the first team.

"That is over one-and-a-half years with no real chance to prove myself.

"I am really looking forward to playing for Sunderland and then we will see next summer.

"I will find a new club - but I will not go back to Arsenal, that's for sure."
