Borussia Dortmund chief rubbishes Bendtner rumours

Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund are not interested in signing another striker this summer, according to their general manager Michael Zorc.

The 23-year-old has openly stated that he is looking for a new club after an increasingly uncertain year due to Robin van Persie’s goalscoring top form last season and the arrival of Moroccan frontman Marouane Chamakh in the summer.

Dortmund have a plethora of frontmen in their team already and Zorc admits that any rumours linking them with a move for Bendtner are unfounded.

“I told you after the season that we do not have any intention to sign another striker,” Zorc said on Friday. “Why should I change my mind because of someone’s [the press’] opinion?”

Copenhagen-born Bendtner has not been a fans favourite since returning back from a loan spell at Birmingham in 2007, although his height up front has proved to be a useful weapon when needed.
