Jack Wilshere will not return from injury until at least October, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed.

Gunners boss Wenger had been unwilling to set a comeback date for the England midfielder, who has already been out for a year with ankle and knee problems.

However, speaking ahead of Arsenal's final match of their Asia tour in Hong Kong on Sunday, Wenger said: "Hopefully, we will get Wilshere back playing for October."
