Everton have completed the loan signing of Arsenal defender Philippe Senderos for the remainder of the season.
The Switzerland international is well down the Gunners' pecking order and was keen to leave in order to ensure his World Cup spot.
Senderos spent last season on loan with Serie A giants AC Milan, but found himself out of Arsene Wenger's first team upon his return to Emirates Stadium.
The 24-year-old has made just two Carling Cup appearances for the North London club and is now relishing his chance to play for Everton.
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."
