Nicklas Bendtner's father has dismissed reports his son could move to Roma after the Arsenal striker was spotted in the Italian capital.

The rumour mill linking the Danish front-man with the Giallorossi went into overdrive at the weekend after Bendtner paid a visit to the Eternal City.

Roma coach Luciano Spalletti's admission that he was tracking a young striker in either Italy or England added further fuel to the fire, but Thomas Bendtner, who also acts as Nicklas' advisor, has now poured cold water on such conjecture.

Claiming the trip to Rome was simply a pre-arranged holiday, Bendtner senior is keen to reiterate that his son remains more than content in North London.

"There is absolutely nothing to the rumour about Roma," he told Sporten.dk.

"Nicklas is happy at Arsenal, and the trip to Rome has been planned for a long time, just like his other summer plans."
