BBC, Sky, ITV 'battle to secure Thierry Henry as football pundit'

The BBC, Sky and ITV are reportedly in the chase to sign up Arsenal legend Thierry Henry as a football pundit.

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry is reportedly in high demand, with the BBC, Sky and ITV all keen on signing him up as a football pundit.

The Frenchman, who currently plays for MLS side New York Red Bulls, impressed while on the panel for Sky's Champions League coverage in midweek, prompting rival broadcasters to make their interest known.

It is understood that the BBC are in pole position to land the striker as he has already agreed to work as a football analyst for their World Cup coverage in Brazil next summer, according to the Daily Mail.

Henry, who will come to the end of his contract next year, will appear as a guest on the BBC's Match of the Day this Saturday.
