The Crystal Palace midfielder is reportedly wanted back at Cardiff City.
According to Sky Sports (December 5 liveblog, 12:14), the Palace midfielder could make a 'surprise return' to the Cardiff City Stadium in January.
Mutch is due back at Selhurst Park after a year on loan to Vancouver Whitecaps, who it is claimed have declined to take up their option of a permanent transfer.
And with little more than six months left on his contract, the 27-year-old may be on the move again in 2019.
But how would those of a Crystal Palace persuasion feel about parting with Mutch (as if we had to ask)?

I’m convinced Mutch is a witchcraft like curse. If we ever sell him, we’d go on to win the league— Kevin McGuire (@kmcguire69) December 5, 2018
We’ll give you £5 million to take him.— Jonny Kyle (@jonnyjkyle) December 5, 2018
How much do Cardiff want for him?— Joshua Kay (@JoshTomKay) December 5, 2018
Won’t happen as he won’t take a wage cut. Absolute loser of a bloke parasite at CPFC— Liam (@LJTCPFC) December 5, 2018
So after that abysmal result last night the only good news I have seen is that someone wants Mutch. Cab for Mutch as soon as. Don’t wait for January they may change their minds. #CPFC— Steve_Block 543 #ByeByeEU (@Steve_CPFC) December 5, 2018
Mutch spent two seasons at Cardiff earlier in the decade, the first of which ended in promotion to the Premier League.
But the midfielder was sold to Queens Park Rangers following the Bluebirds' relegation in 2014, and moved to Crystal Palace for £5.71 million (Transfermarkt) after the R's suffered the same fate the a year later.
Mutch has played 40 times for Palace in total, but not since January 2017 competitively.
