Nottingham Forest have completed the signing of former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner on a two-year contract.

The 28-year-old has been a free agent since leaving German side Wolfsburg last season, enabling Forest to sign him outside of the transfer window, which closed last week.

Bendtner becomes the 12th new arrival at the City Ground following the appointment of Philippe Montanier as head coach over the summer and he could go straight into the squad for the trip to Aston Villa on Sunday.

The Denmark international began his career at Arsenal and had loan spells at Birmingham, Sunderland and Juventus before switching to Wolfsburg in 2014.

He scored 24 league goals in 108 appearances for the Gunners and has netted 29 times in 72 outings for his country.

Bendtner could be set for a swift reunion with Arsenal, with Forest having been drawn at home to Arsene Wenger's team in the EFL Cup later this month.

Forest owner and chairman Fawaz Al-Hasawi confirmed the striker's arrival, saying on Twitter: " Please welcome Nicklas Bendtner who has joined #NFFC on a two-year deal."
