Gerard Houllier, New York Red Bulls chief, has stated that Thierry Henry will not be joining Arsenal for a third time when the January transfer window opens, with the head of Red Bull’s Global Soccer saying that there has been no contact between the two clubs.
Speaking to Canal + Houllier said
I find it strange when we hear in the media. If Arsene needed him, he would have called me or Andy Roxburgh, but this is not the case.
I do not think both parties need to have this second comeback. Moeover he has become a dad again. I think he will appreciate this truce.
It has been, of course, widely reported that the deal was all but done and that Henry was keen for the return to happen with Arsenal seeking to extend the loan until the end of the season. This is the second time that the Red Bulls have said there has been no contact so you would have to think that if Arsenal wanted him for January they would have made contact by now.
