Full back wants Villa exit.
Aston Villa defender Alan Hutton is reportedly searching for a way out of the club and has suggested that a return to Spain would be hugely appealing, Sky Sports reports.
The 28-year-old spent the second half of the season on loan with La Liga outfit Real Mallorca after being frozen out by Paul Lambert during the first stretch of the campaign.
The season ended in relegation for the Mallorca club, but Hutton’s performances were generally well received and he has admitted that the sojourn to Spain had rekindled his love of the game and insists that he would be more than willing to head out to the continent once again.
“I was able to play football and enjoy it – it’s the first time I’ve been able to say that in a while,” he told the Sunday Mail.
“I don’t know how to explain it. I had a few bad years so just to go and enjoy my football again was really good. It’s a lot calmer. I would love to go back.”
“I’ve got another year and I’m in no rush. It’s not as if I’ve not got a club.
“But obviously I want to move. Another loan deal would not be ideal. It’s not ideal for the family. I would like a permanent deal.
“There’s never been one problem with me and the manager. I’ve had many meetings with him and there is no problem there. I just need to move on and play.”
