New Everton loan signing Philippe Senderos knows he has a challenge to break into the side but believes he can fulfil his "high hopes".
The 24-year-old agreed a temporary move from Arsenal at the weekend and the paperwork has been formally completed this afternoon.
"I am delighted to be an Everton player for the remainder of the season," said the Swiss international.
"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."
He added: "I am here with high hopes and hopefully I can fulfil them."
Senderos spent last season on loan at AC Milan, for whom he made 15 appearances.
He arrives at Everton just as their injury crisis appears to be easing, with the club on a seven-match unbeaten run in the Barclays Premier League.
"I have spoken to David Moyes and he hopes to give me opportunities here," he told evertonTV.
"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."
