Aston Villa are moving for former Fulham and Arsenal defender Philippe Senderos.

The Daily Mail says Senderos will have a medical at Aston Villa on Thursday before flying off to the World Cup to join up with Switzerland.

The defender spent the second half of last season on loan at La Liga side Valencia after leaving Fulham.

The 29-year-old spent four years at Craven Cottage and previously played for Arsenal, AC Milan and Everton.

Senderos is set to sign for Villa on a free transfer before linking up with the Swiss squad on Friday.
