Arsenal yet to make third Henry approach

Arsenal have yet to make an approach to New York Red Bulls to bring back former captain Thierry Henry for his third spell at the club, the Daily Mirror has reported.

It had been suggested by manager Arsene Wenger that Henry could play for the club during the Major League Soccer off season, as he did last year, when during a loan spell from the Red Bulls Henry made seven appearances and scored twice, netting in his first appearance, in the FA Cup against Leeds United, and his last, in the Premier League against Sunderland.

But Gerard Houllier, the head of global football for the Red Bulls, insists Arsenal have not made contact with the club over taking Henry on loan for a second successive season, and claimed that it is not for certain that Henry would want to spend the close season playing in the Premier League.

Houllier said: “I find it strange what we hear in the media. If Arsene needed him, he would have called me or [sporting director] Andy Roxburgh, but this is not the case. I do not think both parties need to have this second comeback. Moreover, he became a dad. I think he will want to enjoy the holidays.
