Alan Hutton will not be offered a new contract, according to the Mirror.

The former Scottish international was due to hold talks with the club about extending his stay on Friday, but they were postponed.

Steve Bruce insisted that the player should be given a new deal whatever league we would be playing in next season, but it’s now likely the 33-year-old will move on to another club. Fans on Twitter had differing views on the decision:

Verdict:

In light of the club’s cashflow crisis and suspension of CEO Keith Wyness, it’s no surprise that talks with our no.21 were called off.

There are certainly more pressing concerns at the moment, but it will be disappointing to see the “Scottish Cafu” leave after what was a very good season.

The full-back has made 168 appearances for us during a seven-year stay at Villa Park. If he does depart, I’m sure every fan will want to wish him well for the future.
