Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is still interested in bringing former striker Thierry Henry to the club on loan.

The Frenchman returned to the club where he scored 226 goals over an eight-year period on a short-team deal last season, famously netting the winner in an FA Cup clash against Leeds United.

Wenger has not yet ruled out a third Arsenal stint for Henry, with the 35-year-old’s current club, the New York Red Bulls, out of action during the Major League Soccer off-season.

“I’ve not lost interest in him,” Wenger told reporters.

“I’ve not completely (ruled it out), but I haven’t spoken about it with him at all.

“He’s still coming today to practice with us. We are 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.”
