Leicester end speculation over Arsenal legend Henry arrival

Reports linking Leicester with a move for New York Red Bulls striker Thierry Henry have been quickly squashed by Foxes boss Sven-Goran Eriksson. The suggestion had been the English Championship side would take the former Arsenal star on a short term deal during the MLS close-season.

But Eriksson confirmed Henry will be playing no part in Leicester's promotion push, despite rumours of an approach.

"It is not true I made an enquiry about him," said the Swede after his side's 4-2 defeat to Manchester City in their FA Cup third-round replay.

"Sometimes you get these rumours and there is a little bit of truth. This time, no.

"I asked the manager of New York Red Bulls - Hans Bakke - before Christmas if he had some good players he wanted to give me on loan for two months. He said no. That was it. I have not spoken to Thierry or his agent."
