Avi Creditor reports that the Red Bulls have no intention of parting with Thierry Henry, Rafael Marquez or Tim Ream.
New York Red Bulls general manager Erik Soler made it clear that eam's training stints with West Brom and Bolton are just that and nothing more. "Tim is going to play for us next year," Soler said. "I met with him, as I did with every single player after the season, and my message was very clear, that we would like him to go on those two training sessions to gain experience, and also to have a personal benchmark on what the mid or lower Premier League would feel like. Apart from that, we have absolutely no other plans than him returning here and gaining some experience that will be good for us."
Soler also quashed rumors that Marquez and Henry could be loaned out.
"We have no plans of loaning any players anywhere," Soler said. "Thierry's working out at Arsenal to stay fit. We're happy that he's doing so, but he's coming back, and we're not taking a loan for Thierry or any other players. We have not been approached by neither Rafa himself or any other clubs. I have had a long chat with Rafa and he's not going anywhere, he's not asked to go anywhere."
