Alan Hutton emerged as one of the surprising news of the January transfer window after he left Aston Villa for the Spanish club Real Mallorca on a loan deal till the end of the season after falling out with Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert.
The Scotland international fell out of favour with Lambert at the start of the season itself, which saw him move on loan deal up until the January transfer window. After his loan spell with Birmingham came to an end, it was rumoured on the football blog that Lambert may be interested in the possibility of making up his differences with Hutton.
However, the relationship appears to have gone beyond repair after Lambert said that Hutton was free to choose any club of his liking in the January transfer window. In the end, the 28-year-old decided to swap Birmingham for Mallorca. Even though Real Mallorca are struggling with the prospect of relegation this season, Hutton has said that he is enjoying life in Spain. He has said that the weather and the league were key choices in making the decision to come to Spain.
Mallorca will be taking on Real Zaragoza during the weekend in a relegation six pointer. Aston Villa will be travelling to United States for their pre-season tour, but Hutton has been left out of the squad once again. He is widely expected to leave the club on a permanent basis in the summer. “All you have to do is look at the weather, see the league and you’ll understand why this is my first choice,” said Hutton in a recent interview. Real Mallorca are currently bottom of the table after having played 33 matches. However, they are just three points away from safety and Hutton, who has made 12 appearances, is confident that they can avoid relegation this season.

After being granted the permission to leave the club on a permanent basis, the Scotland defender Alan Hutton has been unable to find a new club to seal his move away from Aston Villa. He spent the first half of the season on loan at the Championship club Nottingham Forest. However, he recently returned to the Midlands club after his loan deal came to an end. He has so far been unable to secure a move away from Aston Villa, but there could be good news for the 28-year-old on this front because the Spanish club Real Mallorca are apparently close to securing the player on a loan deal till the end of the season.
Immediately after taking over from Alex McLeish in the summer, the former Norwich manager Paul Lambert said that players like Alan Hutton and Stephen Warnock were free to leave the club. Lambert, though, has been unable to enjoy a good run of form with his Aston Villa team, who are highly inexperienced. Hence, there was a possibility of Hutton returning to the team in order to have some experience to the team, but Lambert recently ruled out the possibility of going back on his decision. The player, though, is in discussions with Real Mallorca over a loan move.
The 28-year-old was a £ 3 million signing for Aston Villa back in 2011 when they were managed by Alex McLeish. He was a first-team regular under Alex McLeish. Even if Hutton joins Mallorca, he will be up against yet another relegation struggle because the Spanish club are currently 19th in the Spanish league. Aston Villa are currently flirting with relegation. A bad run of form since the turn of the year has seen them slip into the relegation zone recently. They have 24 points from the 26 matches played.

Aston Villa are yet to receive any offers for the defender Alan Hutton according to the manager Paul Lambert. The manager said during the summer transfer window that the former Tottenham defender was free to leave the club after not being in the plans for the season. He was expected to make a permanent move to our clubs like Sunderland and Nottingham Forest, but the move never materialised. Instead, Alan Hutton joined the Championship club Nottingham Forest on a loan deal, which expired only recently. However, the club are no closer to finding a solution for the future of the player according to Lambert.
He has said that the club has not received any offers for Alan Hutton or Stephen Warnock. Meanwhile, the club are struggling down near the bottom of the table after recent run of poor results. Since the 8-0 defeat at the hands of Chelsea a few weeks back, Villa have been conceding a lot of goals. They have shipped 20 goals in the last five matches and have slipped into the relegation zone as a result of it. Lambert has said that he is willing to listen to any offers for the two players. They look unlikely to getting back into the first-team despite the recent struggles for Villa.
“I don’t know what’s happening with Forest, but Alan’s back now. I’ll see him at some point to see what he thought of it. I think he did fine at Forest. They’ve got a new manager (former Villa boss Alex McLeish) and Alan will have his own ideas on what he wants to do. It’s just the same, everything’s exactly the same as what it was last time, with Alan and with Stephen Warnock and for everybody,” said Lambert. Villa are currently in the relegation zone.
