Swiss defender Philippe Senderos has completed a move to Aston Villa. The centre back joins on a free transfer from Spanish side Valencia.
The 29-year-old, who has 52 caps to his name, has signed a three year contract at Villa Park.
"I am really delighted to be joining Aston Villa, a great club with such a big history, and for me this is a great step in my career," said Senderos.
"There will be a lot of competition for places with Ron Vlaar, Ciaran Clark, Nathan Baker and Jores Okore also very capable Premier League defenders, so it will be up to me to fight for and to earn my place in the team."
