Wenger wants Henry's contract re-signed by January
font size    

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger claimed on Friday that he hope the Gunners' skipper ace hitman Thierry Henry could re-sign his contract before January 1.

The French international has under two years left on his current contract and Wenger would like his captain signed up within three months.

However, the French tactician is not worried about Henry's future.

"I am not concerned about Thierry. He is in paradise here!" he declared.

"We did not formally sit down with him, so it was not a refusal that he gave. We are not especially worried as we are sure about his commitment to the club, so I don't think he will go.

"But we will do it soon, it's one of our priorities. We want to sort it out by the end of this year. It is not easy to extend the contract of a player.

"It takes time and patience. Thierry has two years to go and two years in modern football is a long time.

"I don't feel Patrick Vieira's departure will have a big impact on Thierry's decision. Patrick was in paradise too! He will realise that soon.

"Thierry could now go wherever he wanted and play. But that is not an argument I'll give him to convince him to sign, as it might provoke him a little bit!"
