Henry wants long-term Arsenal loan

Thierry Henry is ready to return to Arsenal for the third time as a loan move from MLS side New York Red Bulls is discussed, the Daily Mirror reports, but the former Gunners captain is understood to want to stay with the club until the end of the Premier League season.

A loan to the Premier League from MLS usually lasts around two months, as was the case in Henry’s temporary switch last year or Landon Donovan’s two spells at Everton, on loan from LA Galaxy.

The Mirror reports that a tentative agreement has been reached for Henry to spend the next 10 weeks at Arsenal but the arrangement could be extended until May, with the Red Bulls allowing Henry to miss part of pre-season training ahead of the new MLS campaign.

Henry was at the Emirates Stadium to see Arsenal beat West Bromwich Albion on Saturday thanks to two penalties from Mikel Arteta. The victory took Arsenal to seventh in the table, two points behind the Baggies, as well as Tottenham Hotspur and Everton, who are all level on points with the Toffees top of the mini-league on goal difference.
