Nicklas Bendtner born 16 January 1988 is a Danish footballer who plays for VfL Wolfsburg and the Denmark national team. His preferred position is centre forward, but he has also played on the right side of attack, and possesses a powerful header.

Having progressed through the youth ranks at Tårnby Boldklub, Kjøbenhavns Boldklub and Arsenal, Bendtner signed his first professional contract with Arsenal in 2005. He made his professional debut in October 2005 in the Football League Cup, in a game against Sunderland. For the 2006–07 season, Bendtner was loaned out to Championship side Birmingham City, where he made 48 appearances. Following his return to Arsenal, he became a regular first team player, but began to slip out of favour during the 2010–11 season. As a result, he moved on loan to Premier League side Sunderland for the majority of the 2011–12 season, where he made 30 appearances. He then spent the entire 2012–13 season on loan to Serie A side Juventus, where he made 10 appearances, but failed to score. Bendtner was released by Arsenal in 2014, and subsequently joined Wolfsburg on a free transfer.

Bendtner has played internationally for Denmark at under-16, under-17, under-19, under-21 and senior levels. He made his senior international debut on 16 August 2006, in a friendly match against Poland, and scored his first international goal in that match. Since then, he has been capped 60 times, scoring 24 goals. He has also featured in Denmark's 2010 FIFA World Cup and UEFA Euro 2012 squads.

Personal life:

In November 2009, it was reported that Bendtner was seen in Hyde Park with Baroness Caroline Iuel-Brockdorff, a socialite and close friend of the Danish Royal Family. 13 years his senior, in 2008 she divorced banker Rory Fleming, nephew of James Bond writer Ian Fleming, with whom she has two children.

The couple met when Iuel-Brockdorff was filmed renovating her family home Valdemars Castle on a reality show. Bendtner was a guest and they did a photoshoot together to promote his appearance. In July 2010, Bendtner revealed through his official website that he was going to become a father. On 16 December 2010, Iuel-Brockdorff gave birth by caesarean section at London's Portland Hospital to a son.
