Nicklas Bendtner has revealed he would consider a move to Russia when his contract expires at the end of the season.
The Denmark international is currently on loan at Sunderland but it remains to be seen if the deal will be made permanent and the striker is weighing up his option.
Arsenal will allow him to leave in the summer and staying at the Emirates Stadium does not appear to be an option. Moving to Russia is though and Bendtner has not ruled out the possibility of joining Andriy Arshavin, who has returned to his homeland when linking up with Zenit St Petersburg on loan.
There is big money in Russia at the moment with one or two big named players, including Chris Samba, and managers heading over.
"There are a lot of very strong players going to Russia, players who previously wouldn't have done so," Bendtner told reporters. "They play great football there.
"I am fine for the moment and I will look at the options available to me when the time comes. You can never say never in football."
