Alan Hutton: Poised for Mallorca move

Scotland international Hutton has not featured for the midlands club this term, but is poised to end his frustration with a move to Mallorca on an initial loan deal, pending a medical.

Villa confirmed on their official website that the full-back will remain with the Balearic Islands side until the end of the season with a view to a permanent deal being concluded over the summer.

Hutton moved to Villa Park in 2011 from Tottenham in a deal thought to be worth £3million and although he was a regular under Alex McLeish last season, he largely underperformed.

When Paul Lambert arrived from Norwich over the summer, Hutton was rumoured to be heading for the exit door when he was left out of the 25-man squad for the pre-season tour of the United States.

The former Rangers man has spent part of this season on loan with npower Championship side Nottingham Forest.

And even though Villa are hovering just above the Barclays Premier League relegation zone, Lambert has refused to issue Hutton a lifeline.

Should his move to the Iberostar Stadium go ahead, the 28-year-old will join a Mallorca side currently lying 19th in La Liga.

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
