Arsene Wenger has no intention of letting Theo Walcott or any of his other Arsenal youngsters out on loan.

Wenger accepts Walcott, who turns 19 in March, is not where he was expected to be after two years with Arsenal - but maintains "he will get there" following what has been a rollercoaster ride after a big-money move from Southampton and subsequent controversial inclusion in Sven-Goran Eriksson´s ill-fated 2006 World Cup squad.

"No, because we are very short," said Wenger when asked whether anyone would now be allowed to go on loan following the Carling Cup exit on Tuesday.
