Alan Hutton has tipped Frederic Guilbert to be sold by Aston Villa before October’s transfer deadline.
The former Villa and Scotland right-back, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, believes the 25-year-old will be on the way after falling behind Matty Cash in the pecking order.
Guilbert was left completely out of the matchday squad against Sheffield United on Monday, while he was left as an unused substitute against Burton Albion in the League Cup.
Fello right-back Ahmed Elmohamady started the League Cup tie and was on the bench for the Villans’ Premier League opener.
Hutton believes that the Egypt international would be the happier of the pair acting as backup to Cash and suggests that Guilbert will be sold in the coming weeks.
Asked if the Frenchman’s future was in doubt, Hutton told Football Insider: “It’s looking that way. Obviously, when they brought in Matty Cash, I expected one to leave.
