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."
