Everton have completed the loan signing of Arsenal defender Philippe Senderos for the remainder of the season.
The Swiss internationa was keen to leave Arsenal in order to ensure his World Cup spot.
Senderos spent last season on loan with Milan, but found himself out of Arsene Wenger’s first team upon his return to Emirates Stadium.
Everton boss David Moyes has promised Senderos a chance to impress and he is now hoping to make his Toffees debut against Sunderland on Wednesday.
“I am delighted to be an Everton player for the remainder of the season,” he told the club’s official website. “I can’t wait to get stuck in and play for Everton.
“Hopefully I can get some first team football in during my time here. I am here with high hopes and hopefully I can fulfil them.
“I have spoken to David Moyes and he hopes to give me opportunities here. Hopefully I can grab that opportunity and stay in the team.
“Everton’s form over the last few weeks has been better and they are getting stronger.”
