Rumour: Bruce looking to sign Bendtner permanently

According to The People, Sunderland boss Steve Bruce is already keen to sign Arsenal loanee Nicklas Bendtner.

The report suggests that Bruce is trying to make Bendtner's loan deal from Arsenal permanent.

The article continues, implying that the Gunners are thought to want around £9 million for the Dane in the forthcoming summer, but Bruce, who managed Bendtner on a loan at Birmingham City, expects that figure to rise if he impresses during his loan spell at The Stadium of Light.

The club has yet to comment on the rumours.
