"I have not spoken to Thierry or his agent"
Sven-Goran Eriksson Quotes of the week

The Foxes manager has poured cold water on speculation the Championship side could land the former Arsenal striker on a short-term deal.

Henry is currently playing for New York Red Bulls and it was thought he could be free to play for another club during the MLS side's close-season.

But Eriksson confirmed Henry will be playing no part in Leicester's promotion push, despite rumours of an approach.

"It is not true I made an enquiry about him," said the Swede after his side's 4-2 defeat to Manchester City in their FA Cup third round replay.

"Sometimes you get these rumours and there is a little bit of truth. This time, no.

"I asked the manager of New York Red Bulls - Hans Bakke - before Christmas if he had some good players he wanted to give me on loan for two months. He said no. That was it. I have not spoken to Thierry or his agent."
