Hutchinson, who retired from football in August 2010 because of a knee problem before returning to the game 18 months later, was sent back to Stamford Bridge for treatment in September.

The 23-year-old was expected to be out for just a fortnight but complications have seen him sidelined for five months.

Davies told the Nottingham Post: "He has started training again, with Chelsea, and we are hopeful he will be back with us shortly.

"He is getting fit and should be back in the squad within 10 days or so.

"Having him back would be a real boost because he is a good player. He has quality. But we need to get him back, to get him fit and then we will see who wants the jersey the most."

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
