Crystal Palace co-chairman Steve Parish declares that a deal for Nicklas Bendtner is dependent on Arsenal finding a new forward before the transfer window closes.

Crystal Palace co-chairman Steve Parish has admitted that the Eagles are in limbo as they attempt to close a deal for Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner before the transfer window closes.

Bendtner arrived in South London for talks over a last-ditch move to Selhurst Park this afternoon, with personal terms and a medical agreed for the Danish forward.

Parish has revealed that the deal will go right to the wire and is dependent on Arsenal finding a striker to replace Bendtner before the 11pm transfer deadline.

He told Sky Sports News: "We're waiting to hear, I think it all depends if Arsenal get somebody else in.

"We don't know anymore than we did a few hours ago. We have contingency plans in place.

"I'm not confident, but I'm hopeful."

The Gunners are thought to be chasing a deadline-day deal for Chelsea forward Demba Ba, with an enquiry lodged over a season-long loan switch.
