Blues roll into Philly after sweeping three-game homestand

  Blues roll into Philly after sweeping three-game homestand St. Louis Blues-Philadelphia Flyers previewPHILADELPHIA — After a lull in which they lost five of six and seven of nine, the St. Louis Blues roll into Philadelphia for a Saturday afternoon showdown having won three in a row, including a hard-earned 2-1 win over the Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday night.

Alan Hutton (born 30 November 1984) is a Scottish professional footballer who plays as a right back for Aston Villa. Hutton made 50 appearances for the Scotland national team.

Hutton wanted to exploit what he saw as a West Indian weakness against pace , picking four fast bowlers for the first Test. Furthermore, on the 1954–55 tour of Australia, Hutton took a close interest in him and was a particular comfort when Cowdrey's father died during the tour.[236].

Aston Villa right back Alan Hutton is out of contract at Villa Park in the summer and interest in his services is building. The Birmingham Mail reports that newly appointed Middlesbrough boss Tony Pulis is interested in a potential move for the player nicknamed the “Scottish Cafu” by the Villa faithful. They have also reported that Scottish side Aberdeen are also interested.

Hutton has been at Villa for over six seasons.  He has made over 150 appearances as well as having three loan spells away from Villa park at Nottingham Forrest, Bolton and Spanish side Mallorca.

Hutton has been in and out of the Villa squad under different Villa managers but, since the appointment of Steve Bruce, he has become an integral member of the squad. He has been mostly deployed at right back but has successfully filled in at left back when he has been called upon.

This insistence on control is visible in the current impasse over arrangements in Yorkshire, where there is strong interest in a pan-Yorkshire deal involving 22 local authorities, but the government is focused on city region-based deals centred on Sheffield and Leeds.

There is a lot of competition for places at right back in this current Villa side with Alan Hutton, Ahmed Elmohamady, Ritchie De Laet and James Bree all fighting for a first team place.

If the rumours of Hutton leaving Villa are true, it would make sense for the club to try and offload him in January where they can still command a fee for him. With Aston Villa being blessed with great depth at right back they wouldn’t necessarily need to bring in a direct replacement for him which could see him used to free up funds for investment elsewhere on the pitch.

De Leat gets loan return to Belguim .
Aston Villa defender Ritchie De Leat has joined his former side Royal Antwerp on loan until the end of the season. Antwerp born De Laet began his career with the Pro League side before leaving for Stoke aged 19. Now 29, De Laet was struggling for first team minutes at Villa and the loan move to Antwerp should see him return to first team action. Since joining Villa from Leicester City last season, De Laet has struggled with injuries which have significantly hampered his playing time. His season was ended against Brentford in September 2016 after he suffered a terrible a knee injury in just his third appearance for the club. De Laet has since fought back from his problems to make nine appearances for Steve Bruce’s side this season but he’s since found himself further down the pecking order at Villa Park with Ahmed Elmohamady, Alan Hutton and James Bree all ahead of him. Royal Antwerp find themselves fifth in the table level with K.A.A Gent on 35 points, just eight points behind Belgian giants Anderlecht. This loan move will see De Laet playing at a high level of football and could pave the way for a permanent move away from Villa Park in the summer.
