The Scotland international will complete the move on Tuesday if he passes a medical.

Mallorca, who are 19th in the 20-team Primera Liga with only four wins this season, will also retain an option to agree a permanent transfer in the summer.

Hutton started his career with Rangers before moving to Tottenham for £9m in January 2008.

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.
