At the end of the day Moyes has come out and said that we need to strengthen at the back over the transfer window, so whether Senderos was to join or not, I don't think it signals anything about the Lescott situation. As far as a player I think Senderos would be a brilliant signing for us, as over the past couple of transfer windows David Moyes hasn't managed to bring in any of the marquee players he wants to take us to the next level. Although Senderos hasn't been able to reach his full potential over the past few years, he has still trained and played at the top level in Europe and has vital champions league experience as well as international experience. From missing out on Owen I think Moyes felt any marquee player would give Everton the boost to start the season well and stop a repeat of the first couple of months that we had at the start of last season. In the current market, the money we will spend on Senderos is relatively cheap for a player with good potential and it is not as if we are buying another Van Der Meyde, as this is a player who is committed and proffessional. Other than all this, it would also give us another player participating in the 2010 World Cup, which I am sure all Evertonians will agree adds an extra special element to International Tournaments.
