Bendtner, who has also had loan spells with Sunderland, Birmingham City and Juventus, could face Arsenal when Forest meet the Premier League side in the League Cup third round later this month.

Forest, who became English champions in 1978 for the only time in their history a year after scraping into the top flight, achieved back-to-back European Cup triumphs in 1979 and 1980.
