Academy graduate Hutton rose through the Nottinghamshire age-group ranks as a teenager, before taking 116 wickets in his first stint in the senior team.
The 27-year-old returns after three years with Northamptonshire, and he conceded that he would always feel a little extra pride at representing the club which nurtured him.
“As much as I enjoyed playing for Northants, my heart has always been with Notts,” he said.
“Notts was my home club as a kid, it was where I grew up playing, Trent Bridge was always the place I dreamed of playing.
“It will always mean a little more to me when I walk out to play a home game at Trent Bridge.”
Hutton will take his place in a seam attack which also includes the likes of Jake Ball, Luke Fletcher, Joey Evison and Lyndon James – all of which honed their talents with the Green and Golds.
It is a connection which the right-armer feels is vital.
“It means more to the players when they’re able to play for the county they grew up with – and I think it means more to the fans too, to see homegrown players out on the field,” he said.
“I think I’m a better player now than when I left, so hopefully I’ll be able to show supporters how I’ve improved.
“It’s really nice to be able to look forward to playing in front of the members at Trent Bridge again.”
