Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists he has no regrets allowing defender Johan Djourou to join Birmingham City on-loan.

Injuries to William Gallas and Philippe Senderos meant midfielder Gilberto had to fill in at the back against Manchester City on Saturday but despite this Wenger feels he has not made a mistake.

"I knew when Djourou left that Alex Song can play in there and Gilberto has played in there already," said Wenger. "I wanted him to be experienced. I know Kolo will go in January [to the African Nations Cup] and I want Johan to play."
