Aston Villa ready to splash out on Tottenham duo

Reports are suggesting that Aston Villa are in the hunt to sign out-of-favour Tottenham pair, Tom Huddlestone and Alan Hutton.

Scotland international, Hutton, looks to have lost his starting spot to Vedran Corluka while the likes of Niko Kranjcar and Luka Modric have relegated Huddlestone to the bench.

Alex McCleish is keen to add some more Premier League experience to his squad, with the likes of Barry Bannan and Marc Albrighton having to deputise after a string of summer departures.

Australian Chris Herd started at right-back for Saturday’s match against Wolves, after the Villans accepted a QPR bid for Luke Young, and will provide good competition for Hutton should he complete a move.
