Thierry Henry has raised fears that he may be prepared to leave Arsenal by informing the club that he will not hold talks over a new contract before the end of the season.

By then the 28-year-old Frenchman will have 12 months left on his deal – leaving Arsenal concerned that he could leave on a free transfer.

“I want to concentrate on football, and focus on winning trophies rather than worry about contracts,” said Henry.

“At the end of the season we will talk about it, I will speak to the boss but my mind is not on it at the moment.”

“We will look to sort something out, but at the moment I have my injury to deal with.”

Henry, who has been sidelined with a groin injury, has earmarked Arsenal’s match against West Brom on October 15 as his potential comeback game.

“I don’t know if West Brom will come too early,” he added. “I’ll need to talk to the boss, but that game is a possibility.”
