Scottish defender Alan Hutton has returned to Aston Villa as Real Mallorca were unable to agree personal terms with the right back. Hutton spent last year on loan at the Spanish side.

Mallorca had hoped that the defender would take a paycut to return to the Balearic Islands for the coming season, but it seems that Hutton has decided against a return and will now head back to England and Villa.

Real Mallorca's boss Llorenc Serra Ferrer said: "I'm pessimistic. Everything had gone well, starting talks with Aston Villa.

"But it has become complicated, because the player is now asking for other things and that cannot be. It has to stop."
