Even if the stories that Kevin Keegan had placed Thierry Henry high on his list of summer targets were true, as The Sun has report, with them speculating that the Toon are prepared to pay £15million for the former Arsenal man, it doesn't seem like he would come to Tyneside anyway.
Any hopes of signing the Frenchman appear to have been dashed by his own words though as he would only consider a return to England if it was with Arsenal: 'I'm happy here at Barcelona. I still have three years of my contract left with Barcelona,' Henry told Football Focus. 'I don't regret stuff in my life. Stuff happens for a reason. You don't regret stuff that you thought about. I don't regret it.
'I'm happy - I don't regret leaving Arsenal. But England... I watch every game that I see on TV. I will always miss it.
'There's only one team in England for me. Everybody knows the love and affection I have for Arsenal. I was so into it, I became a fan.
'There has been since I arrived here a lot of speculation from day one but, hey, go back where? There's only one team for me in my heart. It took me a while to understand what that club, Arsenal, meant.'
If the Toon did offer £15million it might be good enough for Barcelona but it doesn't appear as if the Toon will be good enough for him, as Arsenal seem to be his one and only love in the Premier League.
