Alan Hutton: Scotland defender set for Real Mallorca loan move

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.

o be fair, one of the reasons its so difficult for certain clubs to get close to Real Madrid or Barcelona is once they have a player who is good enough to compete against the likes of Real Madrid or Barcelona, they f*ck off, usually to either Real Madrid or Barcelona.

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.
