Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has completed a permanent move to Monaco after passing medicals on Friday.
The former Arsenal midfielder leaves English football after 501 matches.
The 31-year-old has signed a three-and-a-half year deal with the Principality club who are 19th in Ligue 1.
He joined Chelsea from Barcelona in 2014, having played 303 times for Arsenal between 2003 and 2011.
“It is a great pleasure to join AS Monaco, [it is] a new project for me,” said Fabregas.
“I’m here to help the team, I’m looking forward to starting. I am very excited.”
Fabregas won two Premier League titles, two FA Cups and a League Cup during his time in England.
Henry took charge of Monaco, where he started his playing career, in October – but they have only won twice under his stewardship and are one place off the bottom of Ligue 1 on 13 points from 18 games.
“We are very pleased to welcome Cesc Fabregas to AS Monaco, a world-class player and a great professional, whose arrival demonstrates the ambition of the club,” said club vice-president Vadim Vasilyev.
“We are convinced that his experience at the highest level will bring a lot to our players on and off the field.”
