Hutton: I’m being priced out of a Spurs exit


Alan Hutton

Alan Hutton has admitted that he is hoping that he can leave Tottenham Hotspur in the January transfer window.

The Scottish full-back has been out of favour at White Hart Lane for some time behind Vedran Corulka and feels he is being priced out of a move.

We paid £9million for Hutton in 2008 and the club are looking to recoup most of the transfer fee if he leaves on a permanent basis.

“It has been tough for me,” he told the Sunday Mail.

“I was looking at options in the summer but nothing came off.

“I moved to Spurs for big money so, if I leave, the club will be wanting that. But it’s tough to get someone to want to pay that sort of cash when you haven’t been playing.“

“If it gets to January and I haven’t played a lot then how can they ask so much?” he added.

“So surely it has to drop. Hopefully it is in my favour then.”

“No way is there that kind of money around just now, unless it’s Man City or Chelseas. So I have to hope the asking price will drop.”

“I heard the Rangers rumour but whether it’s true or not I don’t know,” he continued.

“At the moment I’d like to stay down in England. I have a lot to prove and a lot to offer down there so my heart is set on doing well down south.”
