Thierry Henry is returning to Arsenal this summer when the New York Red Bulls play a preseason match against the Premier League team in the Emirates Cup tournament.

The former France striker's impressive eight-year spell at Arsenal ended in 2007 when he joined Barcelona, and he remains a revered name at the London club.

Henry will be up against his former club on July 31, when Arsenal and the Red Bulls meet on the second day of a weekend tournament also involving Argentine side Boca Juniors and French team Paris Saint-Germain.

Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis says, "I'm sure all Arsenal fans will be looking forward to welcoming back Thierry Henry - a true Arsenal legend."
