It was Leno who played in the last round of the Carabao Cup against Brentford, while the 26-year-old German global has also been Arsenal's Europa League goalkeeper this season. He told Sky Sports News on Wednesday that the plan is still to find a new job by the start of 2019, but that he doesn't know where yet.
The Welshman's deal at the Emirates expires at the end of the season and he will be free in January to negotiate a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs while Premier League sides will be able to sign him for free in the summer. I'll be somewhere - but I don't know where.
Seasiders boss Terry McPhillips though believed the straight red card to be harsh on the young defender, telling the Blackpool Gazette: "I thought the officials were good but I didn't think it was a sending off for our lad".
The full-back is one of five Gunners defenders now sidelined with injury, leaving coach Unai Emery with very few options ahead of two games in quick succession.
Both players are nursing hamstring injuries, but will be checked prior to the cup match and may be in line for a return against the midtable League One side. And Wenger, whose team finished sixth last season, said he's happy to see that.
Arsenal are looking to get back on the winning track after their 2-2 tie away to Crystal Palace ended their 11-game winning streak.
"After that, I'm a supporter like anyone else - I want them to win football games".
Wenger, in a separate interview with talkSPORT radio, was asked if Arsenal could win the Premier League this season, having last been crowned champions of England under him in the 2003/04campaign.
