Sunderland swoop for Tottenham full back Hutton

Tottenham defender Alan Hutton has joined Sunderland on loan for the remainder of the season. The Scotland right-back has struggled to live up to his £9million price tag since switching from Rangers two years ago.

Black Cats boss Steve Bruce is delighted with the 25 year old's capture.

"We have been particularly short of defensive options of late so Alan will come in at a very opportune time and will provide us with vital reinforcements," Bruce told the club's official website.

"We have tracked him for some time so we're delighted to have brought him here until the end of the season. I'm sure he will have a big part to play between now and May."
