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 Â£9million for Hutton in 2008 and the club are looking to recoup most of the transfer fee if he leaves on a permanent basis.
â€œIt has been tough for me,â€ he told the Sunday Mail.
â€œI was looking at options in the summer but nothing came off.
â€œI moved to Spurs for big money so, if I leave, the club will be wanting that. But itâ€™s tough to get someone to want to pay that sort of cash when you havenâ€™t been playing.â€œ
â€œIf it gets to January and I havenâ€™t played a lot then how can they ask so much?â€ he added.
â€œSo surely it has to drop. Hopefully it is in my favour then.â€
â€œNo way is there that kind of money around just now, unless itâ€™s Man City or Chelseas. So I have to hope the asking price will drop.â€
â€œI heard the Rangers rumour but whether itâ€™s true or not I donâ€™t know,â€ he continued.
â€œAt the moment Iâ€™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.â€
