Aston Villa swoop for Targett

Aston Villa swoop for Targett

Academy graduate Targett featured 21 times for Southampton last season, and made 63 appearances overall for the club since making his senior debut five years ago.

Aston Villa will pay an initial £11m but the amount will rise to £17m with add-ons included plus payments should the 23-year-old play for England.

Southampton have announced that Matt Targett has agreed a permanent move to Aston Villa for an undisclosed fee.

Aston Villa have signed former England Under-21 global Matt Targett from Southampton, the newly-promoted Premier League club said on Monday.

Smith said: "We're very pleased to have Matt join us".

Seven day local weather forecast for June 30 through July 06
It won't be a complete washout, but it's looking like some showers and thunderstorms are in store for the Fourth of July . Late in the day, an advancing cold front will bring chances for showers and a few pop up thunderstorms to the area.


Southampton, who spent a reported £15 million ($19m) on Adams, have also sold left-back Targett to Villa for around the same fee.

Adams has scored 34 Sky Bet Championship goals in 116 appearances at St Andrew's since joining from Sheffield United in 2016, including 22 last term.

Since Hasenhuttl's arrival last season, Austin has been on the periphery of the Southampton team and is looking for more regular first team football and with his Premier League experience he could be an ideal fit for the two newly promoted clubs.

"I have spoken to him and I'm really excited to join the club, work with him and help him in his plans to move this club as forward as it can go. Dean, the gaffer, is building something special here", Targett told the club website.

Ings, 26, joined the south coast side on a season-long loan in August 2018, and the club on Monday said they have now signed the player on a three-year deal.
