Alan Hutton: Would welcome an extended stay at Mallorca

The Scotland international joined Mallorca on loan until the end of the season on Tuesday, having not made a single appearance for Villa this term.

The Spanish side, who are currently second-bottom of the Primera Liga with only four wins this season, have the option to agree a permanent deal for the defender in the summer.

Hutton, who was loaned to Nottingham Forest earlier in the season, making seven appearances, would welcome a longer move.

He told the Daily Record: "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.

"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."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
