Denmark striker Nicklas Bendtner insists he has no intention of returning to Arsenal once his loan spell with Sunderland is over.
Bendtner joined the Black Cats on a season-long loan on transfer deadline day after falling out of favour with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.
The 23-year-old appeared mostly as a substitute last season and he believes he has not been given a fair chance by Wenger since he suffered leg and shoulder injuries in a car crash two years ago.
Bendtner can't wait to feature regularly under Sunderland boss Steve Bruce - who also took him on loan to Birmingham in 2006-07 - and is now planning for life after Arsenal.
"I will never go back to Arsenal. If I can have it my way, I will never play for them again," Bendtner told The Sun.
"After my car accident I never really got the chance to earn a spot in the first team.
"That is over one-and-a-half years with no real chance to prove myself.
"I am really looking forward to playing for Sunderland and then we will see next summer.
"I will find a new club - but I will not go back to Arsenal, that's for sure."
