Newcastle United are only one of a number of leading clubs tracking Glasgow Rangers’ full-back Alan Hutton, according to The Times today.
Alan Hutton – Rangers star in big demand in England
The Â£8M rated Scotland international, who played brilliantly for Scotland in their recent heroics in trying to qualify for the European Championships, has reportedly recently turned down a move to Tottenham. Manchester United are also said to be monitoring the situation.
The 23 year-old Rangers right back has played 92 times for Rangers and scored 2 goals and played for his country Scotland 6 times. Alan stands 6â€™1â€ tall and it seems only a matter of time before he ends up playing the Premier league, but exactly which club he will sign for, remains open to question.
We think that left back is the position we need to strengthen more than right back, where Habib Beye is playing very well right now. We also have other players, like Steven Taylor, who can fill in admirably at right back.
What do you think?
Should we be trying to sign Alan Hutton given our other priorities?
