The Chelsea defender, who can play both at centre back and right back, is highly thought of at Stamford Bridge and has already overcome adversity in his short career.
A product of The Blues’ academy, his career began to gather momentum at the end of the 2006-2007 season when, at the age of 18, he replaced Wayne Bridge in the 89th minute of Chelsea’s 1-1 Premier League draw with Everton.
Jose Mourinho, who handed him his first team debut, had likened the youngster to John Terry, and it was accolades such as that which made the news which was to come three years later even more heart-breaking.
A long-standing knee injury, which had decimated his progression after signing a new contract in August 2007, forced him to retire aged just 21.He stayed at Chelsea to coach youngsters in the club’s academy while, at the same time, studying a university degree in Sports Science.
Swindon boss Paolo Di Canio offered him the job of First Team Coach at The County Ground but Hutchinson turned down the offer.
16 months later came a dramatic turn-around. After noticing a marked lack of pain in his knee during coaching sessions, he seized the opportunity to re-kindle his career and signed a new one-and-a-half year deal with Chelsea last December.
A substitute appearance in The Blues’ 6-1 win over QPR in April signalled his comeback and led to his first ever Premier League start two weeks later, in Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Blackburn.
On his arrival at The City Ground, he said: "I think it's the right step for me at the moment, I want to go and play games and prove myself. It's a great club to come to, it's got massive history and hopefully we'll do well this season."
