With the weekend’s reports indicating that Southampton have now agreed a deal with Aston Villa for their long term Targett, Academy product Matt, plenty of fans seem delighted with the news.

Bid In For Southampton Academy Graduate & Journalist Is Confident Deal Will Go Through

In short, it’s been claimed that the newly promoted side will pay £14million up front but the overall deal will be worth £17million to us and it didn’t take long for most fans to see an immediate read across to our chase for Birmingham City striker Che Adams as the Targett deal (assuming those figures are correct) instantly balances out the reported £15million agreement we are supposed to have now agreed with them.

Whilst I’m sad to see him go and I think they’ll be an element of regret as he develops further, with Ryan Bertrand being first choice and Targett wanting game time it does make it a sensible deal, especially if it is the difference between getting Adams over the line or not as up front is a far bigger problem than defence.
