Return to Aston Villa? Hutton would rather stay in Spain


Alan Hutton is in no rush to return to Aston Villa.

The Scotland international joined the Midlands club from Tottenham Hotspur in a £3million move in the summer of 2011, but he has failed to make a positive impression. Indeed, last season, he was voted as the club’s worst ever player by some fans.

Hutton, who made seven appearances for Nottingham Forest during a loan spell at the City Ground earlier this season, had hoped for a fresh chance under compatriot Paul Lambert this term, but he has been completely ignored by Alex McLeish’s successor.

The 28-year-old fullback has now been farmed out to Real Mallorca on loan for the rest of the season, and he could debut when they travel to Real Sociedad on Sunday evening. As for his future at Villa, Hutton now only has eyes for an extended Spanish stay.

"It would be a brilliant thing for me to stay on. First and foremost I know I need to prove to everybody what I can give to the team and that I deserve to be here,” he told the Daily Record. "There are a lot of flair players here to deal with. I hope that will help me improve my game and become a better player in the long run.

"This is a great opportunity. It's something totally different to come to a different county and experience so many new things. I am happy to be here and looking forward to being involved in what's going on in the future."
