Nicklas Bendtner on his way to Crystal Palace?

Numerous sources are hinting that Bendtner might be at Selhurt Park come the end of the day.

Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner may be on his way to Crystal Palace, according to numerous sources including Sky Sports News and Metro:

But what's that you say? What about his exorbitant wages? How will Crystal Palace, newly promoted, afford those? Well, there's a potential answer to that:

Essentially Arsenal would be paying a little more than half his wages this year to get him out the door; in effect, what this does for the club is get them back about 25k/wk in wages that they can use to sweeten any potential deals now or in January.

Despite the fact that Arsenal have one true number nine and relatively few other viable striker options, the likelihood that Bendtner was going to show up on a teamsheet this year in any capacity was extremely slim, so anything Arsenal can get back now is probably good business. If this is the last we've seen of Nicklas Bendtner, we'll always have that game-winner against Tottenham Hotspur, Nicky.
