Wojciech Szczesny admits Arsenal "need" record goalscorer Thierry Henry back at the club.

The 34-year-old Frenchman has agreed to rejoin the Gunners on a two-month loan deal from Major League Soccer franchise New York Red Bulls. Henry's deal is dependent on insurance agreements being worked out with the American club, and goalkeeper Szczesny is praying the deal goes through.

"He's quality," he said. "He's a great finisher and he's very clever, very intelligent, plus he's a great figure to have in the dressing room. He helps all the players off the pitch as well as on the pitch, so it's great to have him in the dressing room. Hopefully everything will be done and confirmed as soon as possible because we need him."
