Absolute legend: Aston Villa fans hail Hutton following announcement

Alan Hutton has announced that he will be leaving Aston Villa when his contract expires at the end of this month.

Hutton has been with Villa since 2011 – making 202 appearances for the club in all competitions.

The 34-year-old struggled with injury in the latter stages of the 2018-19 campaign but still made 34 appearances for Dean Smith’s side in all competitions.

The Scot was not included in either leg of Villa’s Championship playoff semi-final against West Bromwich Albion, though, or the final against Derby County.

Hutton has posted a message on his Instagram account thanking the fans for their support and revealed that he would be leaving Villa Park this summer.

And as expected, that led to a number of the club’s supporters paying tribute to the former Tottenham Hotspur defender, who will now be moving on to the next chapter of his career.

A selection of the Twitter reaction to Hutton’s announcement can be seen below:
