BIRMINGHAM, England - Switzerland defender Philippe Senderos has agreed to join Premier League club Aston Villa on a two-year deal.

The 29-year-old former Arsenal player, who has been selected in Switzerland's 23-man squad for the World Cup in Brazil, played 117 matches with the Gunners and spent loan spells at AC Milan and Everton before joining Fulham in 2010. He moved to Valencia on loan from Fulham in January this year.

Senderos said "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."

Senderos is Villa manager Paul Lambert's first signing of the summer.
