The New York Red Bulls striker has been training with the Gunners once again.
There were some murmurings around the Emirates Stadium this week that Thierry Henry would be making a return for Arsenal after training with the side.
The New York Red Bulls striker is currently in the off season from MLS duty and made a similar switch to the Gunners in January 2012.
With the Frenchman back in north London and the club in dire need of attacking support, many thought Arsene Wenger would bring the 36-year-old back for a third spell.
However, the manager has since laid rest to these rumours and insists Henry will not be donning the club’s shirt in the New Year.
“They [former players] like to come back to Arsenal, to practise. When they can join in, they do. They integrate well [with] the spirit of the team. Nothing more than that!” Wenger was quoted by the Mirror.
The retired France international spent eight years with the club between 1999 and 2007 after being signed from Juventus.
Henry played 362 matches during that time in all competitions, scoring 223 goals and providing 60 assists and also reaching second in the all-time top Premier League scorers list.
After that the forward moved to Barcelona for three years and added a Champions League medal to the already brimming awards list, that also includes the World Cup and European Championship.
Henry left the Nou Camp in 2010 for New York where the attacker plays alongside former Everton star Tim Cahill.
