Arsenal winger Theo Walcott has welcomed back Thierry Henry.

Walcott admits he will be delighted to be reunited with the 34-year-old legend.

He added: "It's great having him in training. He's a great finisher as always and a good leader around the dressing room.

"He'll be very good for the young guys coming through, he's so much experience. He's been everywhere to World Cups and won leagues, so he's only going to help on that side of the game. He's another option up front as well."

Walcott only played with Henry for a season before the Frenchman made a £16million move to Barcelona in 2007.

But the young hitman reckons their relationship will be completely different this time around.

He said: "I've obviously played a lot more games now and gained more experience. I'm one of the senior players even though I'm only 22.

"I'm much more relaxed around the place, but still work hard which is important. I'm not star struck like I was before, I'm just normal now."
