Henry’s current deal is set to expire soon with the Frenchman expected to make his return to his parent club on the 17th of February after Arsenal’s upcoming match against Italian giants AC Milan.
Backe said on Henry’s return to the MLS:
When I spoke to him [Henry], he told me that he was 100 per cent coming back on February 17.
What I know, it’s only rumours. I haven’t heard anything from them about extending the loan.
The experienced forward has netted two goals in five appearances in what has been a great morale boost to the Arsenal camp. Whether he goes next week or stays around until the Spurs clash, it as been amazing having Arsenal’s all-time top scorer at the Emirates!
