No big loss for Southampton
Targett was at Southampton since 2003, and although the 23-year-old made his first-team debut back in 2013, the youngster had failed to make a massive impact at the Saints.
The departure of the former England Under-21 international is not a big loss for Southampton, but he is a very good long-term signing for Villa and will provide first-choice left-back Neil Taylor with the competition that he needs.
