Senderos joined Villa on a free transfer earlier this summer from Valencia and has signed a two-year deal at Villa Park.

The Swiss international has joined up with Villa for their pre-season tour of America after an extended break following his exploits at the World Cup and the former Arsenal man believes the tour will benefit the squad.

"It feels great to have joined up and I'm genuinely looking forward to the challenge ahead," Senderos told the club's official website.

"I've had a break following the World Cup, which was fantastic to be involved in, and I'm really excited about the season ahead.

"Being out here in the United States will definitely benefit us as a group and it will be an opportunity for myself and the two other players who have just come to Villa, Joe Cole and Kieran Richardson, to get to know our team-mates much better.

"The climate will be warm and conditions perfect for training and the competition from the two MLS teams we're playing will be really good as they're in the middle of their season."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
