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."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
