Sunderland to offer Hutton a Spurs exit?

Sunderland are reported to be ready to make another move for Tottenham defender Alan Hutton, according to the Daily Mirror.

Steve Bruce was interested in the Scotland full-bak during the summer, but a move failed to materialise.  Hutton has struggled with his form this season and Harry Redknapp could possibly allow him to leave, since he has Vedran Corluka and youngster Kyle Naughton waiting for his chance to shine.

Would you allow Hutton to leave Spurs, and if so, for how much?

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. If I was Harry I would bite Steve Bruce’s hand off … especially if we could recoup close to the 8 or 9 million quid we paid for him … He is injury prone and lacks even basic defensive instincts … Frequently caught ball-watching and or out of position / on wrong side of his attacker … he was at fault with the Preston goal in midweek … the Birmingham equaliser three weeks ago … and he made a feeble attempt on Rooney’s third for United two weeks ago, to name 3 recent examples of abject defending … He also seems more interested in playing for Scotland than the club that pays his wages … Sunderland fans beware … the Scottish Anton Ferdinand!

  2. He was dubbed as the ‘Scottish Cafu’ when he came down and Rangers fans were gutted to lose him. Well, they can have him back! I would say to any Spurs manager, NEVER EVER EVER buy anyone based on their performances in the SPL – its a joke league and you will always overpay.

    So yes, I’d sell him as he is an awful defender – and I don’t remember him doing much in the attacking third either. Hopefully harry will give Naughton more chances.

    Oh and the fee? 4 mill would see me happy.

  3. Well, I was concerned when we were trying to sign him. He apparently turned us down more than once, and we persisted. He probably held out until we paid him enough. He gets paid the same whether he plays good or bad, and since he came back from the first major injury – it’s been more bad than good. I hope he comes good again, but I have my doubts.
