Philippe Senderos has welcomed the prospect of a loan move to Celtic in a bid to resurrect his World Cup dream.

The Arsenal defender, 24, has been linked with a switch to the Glasgow giants and believes such a move could boost his hopes of representing Switzerland in South Africa this summer.

"I am very honoured that a big club like Celtic are interested in me and a loan deal right now would suit me perfectly," he said.

"My main priority is to get back playing regular football. I really miss that. The World Cup this summer is a really big thing for me. I know that if I'm not playing regularly my chances of playing in South Africa will be badly affected.

"It would be my second World Cup and I want to get the best possible build-up to it.

"Unfortunately, I haven't played a lot of football recently and that's why I feel I have to leave Arsenal.

"Hopefully something will be in place over the next few days but I'll wait and see."
