Championship strugglers Bolton have signed Aston Villa defender Alan Hutton on a one-month loan deal.
The Scotland international was recently informed he has no future at Villa Park by the club's manager Paul Lambert.
Hutton has been loaned to Nottingham Forest and Spanish side Mallorca during the last two seasons.
The 29-year-old former Tottenham full-back has only played six senior matches this season, all of them for Scotland.
Hutton will add some experience to the Bolton defence, with the team sitting just six points above the drop zone, having played three games more than third from bottom Charlton.
