The Scottish full-back has kept himself ticking over with international outings for his country, but remains frozen out of the first-team picture domestically.

Hutton was able to find regular football during a stint at La Liga outfit Mallorca last season, but failed to secure a permanent move away from Villa Park over the summer.

Another loan switch has now been mooted, with Villa aware of the 28-year-old's desire to get games under his belt.

Lambert admits he will not stand in Hutton's way if a suitable offer is received, but has refused to be drawn on reports suggesting interested parties are being put off by a Premier League wage packet.

He said: "I don't know, you'd probably have to ask the teams that are interested in him.

"It's good for him that he's performing for the national team, I can't influence that, all I can influence is Aston Villa.

"If something comes in, we'll certainly look at it. I spoke to Alan but, at the moment, we've not had anything."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
