Hutton joins Mallorca on loan

Aston Villa defender Alan Hutton has completed a loan move to La Liga club Mallorca, it was announced Tuesday.

Hutton, who had not featured for Villa for this season, will spend the remainder of the season with Mallorca, which is engulfed in a battle against relegation.

"I hope to give all I have to offer," said Hutton at his unveiling. "I am very excited to come to this club. I was very excited to be able to come to play in Spain. For me it is a new project, a new league, a new country, and I have come with lots of knowledge because I've been able to speak with players I know.

"I knew about the interest from Mallorca about two months ago, and from then on I told my agent it was my first and only choice."

Mallorca, which has lost its last three league matches, sits second from bottom in Spain's top flight with 17 points.
