Arsene Wenger admits he has not spoken to Thierry Henry about returning to the club for a third spell, despite the fact that the New York Red Bulls striker is currently training with the Gunners.

Arsenal legend Henry had a successful loan at the Emirates last season, scoring two goals in seven appearances during the MLS off-season.

He had been tipped for a third spell with his old club this January, but Wenger says that, while he has not lost interest completely, there is no agreement currently in place.

“I’ve not lost interest in him,” Wenger told reporters. “He’s still coming today [Friday] to practise with us.

“[Our relationship is] very close but, at the moment, I think 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.

“[I have] not completely ruled it out but I haven’t spoken about it with him at all.”
