Ex-Arsenal striker Bendtner set for Championship

Former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner is set for a return to English football after agreeing to join Nottingham Forest, Press Association Sport understands.

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 will become the 12th new arrival at Forest following the appointment of Philippe Montanier as head coach over the summer.

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

Hull's automatic promotion bid continued to falter as they were held to a second successive home draw and slipped to fourth in the Sky Bet Championship table.

Hull were held 1-1 by Nottingham Forest, the same score as against MK Dons at the KC Stadium on Saturday.

Forest earned new manager Paul Williams a point in his first game in charge since being appointed to replace Dougie Freedman for the remainder of the season.

Forest took a first-half lead through Gary Gardner's rising shot from distance before Sone Aluko slid home a second half equaliser for Hull whose winless run in the Championship extended to four games.
