Philippe Senderos was Paul Lambert's first summer signing - joining on a free transfer from La Liga's Valencia.

When unveiled, the Villa boss described the 29-year-old as 'a great additional to the group.'

The central defender has regularly graced the Villa Park turf, albeit for the opposition.

He enjoyed a six-year spell with Arsenal where he won the FA Cup in 2005.

His CV boasts further Premier League experience after loan spells at Everton and a permanent move across London to Fulham.

He shared his first day at Bodymoor Heath with a familiar face as fellow newboy Kieran Richardson was part of the same Fulham squad and backline.

Senderos was part of Villa's Texas tour and made his home bow in a goalless draw against Parma in early August.

Senderos, who has also played for AC Milan, is of Serbian and Spanish descent and speaks five languages: English, French, Spanish, German, and Italian.

The 2014 tournament in Brazil was Senderos' third World Cup and his experience will undoubtedly add a calmness to Villa's backline.

Senderos will help to impress in the the claret and blue defence this term..
