Crystal Palace midfielder Barry Bannan is surprised Alan Hutton is still with Aston Villa.

Hutton has been ostracised by manager Paul Lambert since his arrival in the summer of 2012.

"He's been brilliant," he said. "I found it tough fitness-wise playing for Scotland when I wasn't involved with my club.

"When he's played, I think his performances have been unbelievable. I can't remember the last time he had a club game but his fitness levels have been amazing.

"I'm amazed he's not had a move. When we played against England at Wembley in August I thought he was terrific and I was sure someone would have watched that and a move would come off."
