Villa Park boss picks up White Hart Lane duo.
Aston Villa have completed deadline-day deals for Scotland full-back Alan Hutton and England midfielder Jermaine Jenas, both from Tottenham.
Former Rangers defender Hutton 26, has agreed a permanent move to Villa park, signing a contract through to 2015 while Jenas has joined on loan for the rest of the season.
A statement on Villa’s official website from manager Alex McLeish said: ‘Alan is a player whom I know well. He is an athletic full-back in his mid-20s – a very good age – and he has a lot of experience playing at a high level, both internationally with Scotland and with Rangers and Tottenham which are big clubs.

Alex McLeish has done well to bring in this White Hart Lane pair as he looks to add strength in depth to his Villa Park squad by bringing in two experienced pros to beef up numbers.
Alan Hutton is a player that McLeish knows well from his spell at Rangers and Jenas’s arrival on loan will give the former England man a chance to get some regular first team action and will be keen to prove Harry Redknapp of his worth.
Aston Villa have lost key players Brad Friedel, Ashley Young and Stewart Downing over the summer and the club have started the new season fairly well and McLeish will hope that his new signings hit the ground running.
