Red-tape forces Arsenal to delay Henry debut

Arsenal are being forced to wait to give Thierry Henry a debut.

Arsene Wenger wanted Henry to feature in a Premier Reserve League match with Sunderland this afternoon in a bid to improve his match fitness, says The Sun.

But the Gunners and Henry's representatives have still yet to receive paperwork from New York Red Bulls regarding the two-month loan agreement.

So Henry, 34, is set to make his debut from the bench against Leeds in the FA Cup third round at the Emirates on Monday.
