DESIGNATED FOR ENGLAND?
Cahill wants to play on loan in Everton, while Arsenal player says Henry might not return to U.S. this winter
Will two of the Red Bulls' designated players play on loan in Europe this winter?
Tim Cahill told the Liverpool Echo that he wants to play on loan with his former club, Everton, in the English Premier League.
Thierry Henry has trained with his former club Arsenal and has told a Gunners player that he might not return to New York this winter, fueling speculation that he could wind up playing on loan with the London club.
Cahill said that he wants to play for his ex-team when the transfer window opens in January.
"I know I have a lot more to offer," he was quoted by the Echo. "The main thing is that I get to enjoy to MLS but I also get the chance of joining back up in the Premier League and playing in the best league in the world.
"There is no shadow of a doubt, I am eager to come back. Hopefully something can be done (with Everton). It would be nice but it is not down to me. I have to respect that sometimes the ship has sailed."
According to Arsenalnews.co.uk, Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud told RTL, a Luxembourg radio station that Henry trained with the team and that he did not know if he would return to the U.S.
That began speculation that the former French international striker could have a second loan spell with his former EPL, according to the website.
Henry enjoyed a successful six-week stint with the Gunnars earlier this year before returning to pre-season training in March.
