Tottenham fullback Alan Hutton says if he is to leave White Hart Lane it must be in a permanent deal.
Hutton says his loan moves away have been unsettling for his family.
He explained: "It's not a great situation to be in. I just need to keep my head up at the moment and keep going.
"There was a lot of speculation but I have a family now and my oldest child is at school. So I can't be going here, there and everywhere on loan and unsettling them. It's a hard decision. "
