Barcelona:

Thierry Henry has completed his 16 million pound move from Arsenal to Barcelona.

The deal was completed after the 29-year-old passed a medical on Monday and was subsequently unveiled at the Nou Camp after signing a four-year deal.

The Spanish club have been trying to lure Henry away from Arsenal for a couple of seasons now and the French footballer said he was finally glad to have made the move.

It is believed that his age, the exit of David Dein as Arsenal vice-chairman and the uncertainty over manager Arsene Wenger, whose contract runs out at the end of next season, contributed to a change of heart from Henry.

During his time with Arsenal, he was the English club's all time leading goal scorer.
