Barcelona vice-president Ferran Soriano has denied claiming the club have agreed a deal to sign Arsenal striker Thierry Henry in the summer.

Henry is out of contract in June 2007 and has yet to sign a new contract with the Premiership club, leading to speculation he could be heading for the Nou Camp. The rumours gathered pace on Monday when Barcelona daily Sport claimed a deal had already been struck with the French international.

But Soriano told PA Sport: "We have made no contact with Thierry Henry and no contract has been agreed with him."
