Arsene Wenger says Arsenal may be able to extend Thierry Henry's loan deal from New York Red Bulls for another two weeks, but admits he has yet to look into the situation.

Henry's current temporary deal from the MLS is close to expiration, and the French striker's last game is scheduled to be against AC Milan on February 15 in the last 16 of the Champions League.

But Arsenal may be able to retain the services of Henry for another fortnight, should Wenger explore the possibility of keeping at the Emirates Stadium.

"I haven't looked at it," Wenger told a press conference after Saturday's defeat of Blackburn.

"Maybe the maximum possibility we have is two more weeks."

Henry scored his second goal since his return to north London during the weekend rout of Blackburn, to take his overall Arsenal tally to 228.

The 34-year-old scored the final goal of a 7-1 thrashing, in which Robin van Persie had netted a hat-trick to take the Dutchman onto 32 goals for club and country this season.

Teenage winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain also scored a brace, while Mikel Arteta added his sixth goal for Arsenal since a summer move from Everton.
