Thierry Henry, the highly lauded French striker, has signed with the New York Red Bulls, the New York Times reports. He is expected to make his debut for the team against the English Premier League's (EPL) Tottenham Hotspur this Thursday.

During his tenure with Arsenal of the EPL, Henry became the league's highest scorer a record four times. The 32-year-old said yesterday that he intends to work toward similar successes on this side of the Atlantic.

“Everyone knows that I love this city, but I can assure you that I came here to win,” Henry said.
