Philippe Senderos will not be offered a new contract at Arsenal.
The Swiss defender moved to Everton on loan this week in search of the top-flight matches he needs to win a place in Switzerland's squad at this summer's World Cup.
Wenger has not ruled out Senderos pulling on an Arsenal shirt again one day but, as it stands, he has no plans to offer the 24-year-old a new deal.
"No [he won't get a new contract]. And he knows that," confirmed Wenger at his pre-match press conference.
Senderos is not the only first-team squad member looking elsewhere for game time in the next few months - Jack Wilshere is expected to complete a temporary move in the next 48 hours.
But, as Wenger pointed out, the circumstances surrounding the two loan deals are very different.
"[The] Senderos [loan] is different. It is only his responsibility," said the manager.
"It is down to me to find an agreement with a club where he goes and afterwards it is only his responsibility whether he plays or not.
"Wilshere is a bit different, we want him to gain experience."
