Aston Villa fans discuss Hutton dilemma

Alan Hutton has been in stellar form for Aston Villa this season, but it appears that his future is elsewhere.

Manager Steve Bruce recently revealed that Financial Fair Play rules mean that the club are not in a position to offer the right-back a new contract, reports the Birmingham Mail.

The publication states that Hutton recently approached the club about extending his current deal, which expires at the end of the season.

However, he was met with the news that there is no possible way at the moment for the club to give him what he wants.

The situation could change if the Villans earn promotion to the Premier League come May, but if they remain in the Championship then Hutton will be released.

As it stands, the Midlands outfit are third in the league table, one point adrift of an automatic move to the top tier.

Hutton, who has started 16 of the club’s last 18 Championship games, joined Villa in 2011 from Tottenham Hotspur.

Fans have been tweeting their thoughts on the predicament.
