Nicklas Bendtner has reiterated his desire to secure a move away from Arsenal, preferably in the January window.

The 25-year-old came close to leaving Emirates Stadium over the summer, with talks held with Crystal Palace.
No deal was agreed, though, and Bendtner - who has spent the last two seasons on loan at Sunderland and Juventus - remains on the Gunners' books.
He finds himself behind Olivier Giroud in the striking pecking order and has made sporadic outings off the bench this term.
With there clearly no long-term future for him in north London, Bendtner hopes his transfer wish will be granted in the new year - with the Denmark international adamant that sporting factors, rather than money, will influence his decision.
"I want to get away from Arsenal. Whether it is in the winter, we must wait and see," he told reporters while away on international duty.
"I will make my decision depending on where the greatest sporting challenge lies. Finances, in this context, mean very little to me.
"I've been playing football since I was four years old and back then it was for the love of the sport. It is for the love of the sport that I play today as well."
Bendtner admits he is growing tired of discussing his future, with Denmark coach Morten Olsen having joined the chorus of those urging him to move on.
After initially refusing to speak about the matter on Wednesday, Bendtner added: "I was sick and angry of answering questions yesterday.
"I think I had said that I did not want to comment on questions about Arsenal and I became sick of it when asked the third time.
"But of course, I don't want it in the way of things. But it happens sometimes where reporters say anything. But I would like only to respond to questions about Denmark when I am with the national team."
