Now of Wolfsburg, Lord Bendtner has long been a source of internet fun for his inflated sense of self-worth, the Dane once declaring himself to be one of the world’s greatest strikers.
His mooted transfer comes hot on the heels of Ezequiel Lavezzi leaving PSG for Hebei China Fortune and Ramires leaving Chelsea for Jiangsu Suning, while former Newcastle and Birmingham striker Obafemi Martins is set to join Shanghai Shenhua.
Now sit back, relax and enjoy the best Nicklas Bendtner China jokes:
Nicklas Bendtner now being linked with a move to China??? This could well be the moment that the Chinese club football boom jumps the shark.

Bendtner is also headed to China. With all these big-name moves, a Chinese team will very soon win the UEFA Champions League

Presume Bendtner's move to China hinges on a club's willingness to give him a triple-digit shirt number.

You haven't endured pain if you didn't have to watch Almunia, Silvestre, Denilson, Bendtner face a prime Messi, Xavi, and Iniesta. #afc

The great wall of China was originally built to block Lord Bendtner's free kicks
