Alan Hutton: Frozen out of the first team picture at Aston Villa

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."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
