Henry completes Arsenal return

Updated: January 6, 2012

Arsenal received a welcome boost ahead of their FA cup third round clash with Leeds with the news that Thierry Henry has completed his loan move to the English club he graced for eight years.

The New York Red Bulls striker had to wait a week to secure his two-month switch as Arsenal finalised insurance agreements with the Major League Soccer side.

Henry, who scored a club-record 226 goals for Arsenal between 1999-2007, could begin his second spell by playing in Monday’s FA Cup third-round match against Leeds.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says “we will have Thierry for January and in February … I am sure during these two months he will be a massive asset to the team in the dressing room and on the pitch.”
