Transfer Gossip: Hutton 'Tough to Re-Sign' - Dougie

Freedman discusses the chances of re-signing the Villa loanee next season

In conversation with the BEN, Bolton Wanderers manager Dougie Freedman has been discussing the chances of his club re-signing Scottish right-back Alan Hutton for the 2014/15 season.

Hutton, on loan at the Reebok since February, has proven to be a good signing by the manager.

He has also proven to be somewhat of a lucky charm, with the side losing just once in his seven appearances for Wanderers, and including one 'assist' (hate that word) when setting up Neil Danns in the 2-1 away win over Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday night.

Freedman said:

"I feel he has done terrifically well. He looks settled and he is getting better as the games go.

"But Premier League wages are getting so huge that you are going to have to do deals, deals are going to have to be sponsored by Premier League players.

"You are going to have to persuade a Premier League player to come and run around on a Saturday afternoon.

"It seems strange they would say ‘no' to an offer like that but a few do that.

Freedman added:

"To find a player who you can do a deal with, who will come and run around as well as being ‘not bad' is very hard.

"I would like next season for us not to use the loan market to get results.

"I would like to make sure we get players in at the beginning of the season and we recruit the right types.

"And if we are going to do an Alan Hutton, it will be for the whole season so we will get a settled team.

"I am hoping Alan's expectations of himself will be to go and play in the Premier League.

"If that's not the case at Villa, or at another Premier League club if he gets sold, and he wants to come back and play here, of course we would take him back."

I think I'll bookmark this particular line:

"I would like next season for us not to use the loan market to get results.
