Nicklas Bendtner has left Nottingham Forest for Norwegian champions Rosenborg, both clubs have announced.

The 29-year-old Denmark forward has put pen to paper on a three-year deal after joining RBK for an undisclosed fee.

Bendtner played 17 times for Forest, with the last of his two goals coming in the 2-1 victory over Newcastle in December.

The Sky Bet Championship outfit confirmed the move on their official website, while Rosenborg posted on Twitter: "Rosenborg have a 3 year contract with Nicklas Bendtner."

Bendtner was an Arsenal player from 2005 to 2014, during which time he had loan spells with Birmingham, Sunderland and Juventus.
