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.

He then joined Aston Villa in August 2011 but has not featured under Paul Lambert this season.

The 28-year-old was loaned out to Nottingham Forest in November and played seven games for the Championship side.

Hutton is keen on the move to Spain as he wants to be playing regular first-team football to safeguard his place in the Scotland squad.

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
