REPORTS have linked Wanderers with a loan move for Aston Villa’s Scottish full-back Alan Hutton.

The ex-Glasgow Rangers man has been frozen out at Villa Park and spent the latter part of last season on loan at Spanish club Mallorca.

The defender’s big wage has presented a sticking point to some of his suitors in the past – but the 29-year-old is apparently in advanced talks about a move to the Reebok, and could link up with the squad in time to face Blackburn Rovers this weekend.

Hutton’s last appearance for Villa was in May 2012, the same day on which Wanderers were relegated from the top flight following a draw at Stoke City.
