There still has not been an official announcement, but the worst-kept secret in the English Premier League is the inevitable return of Thierry Henry to Arsenal, a team for which he scored 226 goals.According to ESPN.com, Henry has been working out with Arsenal since his current club, the New York Red Bulls finished their MLS season in November. Over the weekend, Arsenal extended an offer to Henry to join the club for two months.

And while Henry has not officially accepted the offer, the club did accidentally post the picture seen at right on their website.


Henry, 34, is seen as insurance as Arsenal will lose two key players, including striker Gervinho, to the Africa Cup of Nations later this month.
