Arsene Wenger claims not to have spoken to Thierry Henry about a loan deal
Arsenal manager is cautious about a third spell at the club for the Frenchman
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger claims not to have spoken to Thierry Henry about the striker joining the club on loan in January, although refuses to rule out a move.
The Frenchman has been strongly linked with a third spell at the club for which he is the all-time leading goalscorer.
Yet despite all the talk, and the fact Henry is currently training with the Gunners, Wenger says he is yet to speak with the 35-year-old about a loan.
"I've not lost interest in him ... but I haven't spoken about it with him at all," Wenger said today.
The New York Red Bulls striker is training at Arsenal's Hertfordshire base during the MLS off-season, and is in theory available to join the Gunners on loan in a repeat of the deal which saw him return last season.
During that spell Henry scored two match winning goals and provided a lift for beleaguered fans. Yet despite last year's famous return, Wenger is exercising caution about another spell at the club for which Henry has scored 228 goals.
"He has had a second spell at the club that was very successful. You have to be cautious that it's not one time too many."
