Aston Villa defender Alan Hutton is set to join Real Mallorca on loan.

The Scottish right-back recently had a stint with Championship club Nottingham Forest but is now expected to spend the remainder of the season with the Spanish outfit.

The 28-year old, who will undergo a medical on Tuesday, has not featured for Villa since the arrival of Paul Lambert and could move permanently to Mallorca if he impresses enough while on loan.
