Senderos joins Aston Villa
Former Arsenal and Fulham defender Philippe Senderos has signed for Aston Villa on a two-year deal.
Swiss international Senderos, 29, becomes Villa manager Paul Lambert’s first signing of the summer.
Lambert will be hoping that the arrival of the highly-experienced defender will help to shore up a back line that leaked 61 goals in the league last season and saw the midlands club flirt dangerously with the relegation zone.
The announcement was made prior to Senderos’ departure to the World Cup with Switzerland on Friday.
