LOAN WATCH: Nottingham Forest loanee Hutton fears for Villa career

Alan Hutton is of the belief that his Aston Villa career will stall under new manager Paul Lambert.

The Scotsman took over from Alex McLeish in the summer which has forced Hutton to seek game time elsewhere through a loan arrangement with Nottingham Forest.

The Scottish right-back has not featured at all for Villa this season after more than 30 appearances in all competitions under McLeish last term and he fears he may have been completely frozen out since Lambert's arrival from Norwich City.

"I don't see any way back for me at Villa," 27-year old Hutton told reporters.

"I was told at the beginning of the season I wouldn't be playing. It's been very frustrating. I want to play and through different circumstances I've not. What's been said has done for me there.

"You'll have to ask Paul Lambert why he's not played me. I don't really want to go into it.

"New managers come in and have their own ideas. That is just the way things go. But you have to go out and make the best of it. Forest is a big club and I want to be part of it."

Hutton made his Forest debut in the 2-1 win at Wolves on the weekend, playing a full 90 minutes as Sean O'Driscoll's men moved up to seventh on the Championship table.
