Arsenal youngster Nicklas Bendtner has set his sights on a first-team place after signing a new five-year contract.

The 19-year-old Dane had a successful season on loan at Birmingham, helping them return to the Premiership.

He said: "It has always been my goal to get my breakthrough at Arsenal. There were no other clubs that were interesting for me.

"I know I have the right qualities, or will be able to develop them. I truly believe that I can break through."

He added: "I have had meetings with them where they have told me that I figure in their plans for the future.

"If that had not happened, neither they nor I would have signed the deal.

"The other strikers may have an advantage over me, but when I restart training and get some good matches under my belt, I am sure I will get my chance and take it."
