Arsenal have sent former striker Nicklas Bendtner a message on Twitter following the Denmark international’s move to Championship side Nottingham Forest.

The forward, 28, completed his move to the Midlands side on Wednesday after his contract was terminated by former club Wolfsburg in April.

Bendtner joined Arsenal in 2004 and left in 2014 for the Bundesliga side and the north London giants have wished him well at his new club – with one proviso.

“Good luck at Nottingham Forest, [Lord] Bendtner – apart from on September 20th of course,” tweeted Arsenal’s official Twitter account to their former player. They also included a gif of the former Arsenal striker celebrating scoring a goal.

He could feature against his former side at the City Ground, with the Championship side drawing Arsenal in the third round of the EFL Cup on September 20.

Nottingham Forest have became the fourth club in England that the Danish forward has represented during his career, following loan spells at Birmingham and Sunderland during his time at Arsenal.

Once considered a bright prospect, Bendtner featured in 171 encounters for the Gunners scoring 45 goals.
