Thierry Henry has denied that he has held talks with either Aston Villa or Egypt in becoming their new manager

After working as an assistant to Belgium boss Robert Martinez at the World Cup, the Arsenal and France legend recently announced that he would not be returning to his punditry role at Sky Sports for the new season in order to fully concentrate on pursuing a coaching role.

Since the announcement, Henry has been linked with various roles with Villa and Egypt having emerged as the favourites.

But the Frenchman has now taken to Twitter to confirm that he is yet to hold discussions regarding any job.

“Since announcing my decision to leave my full-time role in broadcasting to pursue my ambition of becoming a manager, I have subsequently been linked with a number of positions both domestically and internationally,” he wrote.

“Contrary to misleading reports people may have read… at this moment neither myself nor my advisers have held any discussions with any club or national association. My intention has always been to be patient and I will take my decision in good time.”
