Southampton Football Club can confirm that Matt Targett has agreed a permanent transfer to Aston Villa for an undisclosed fee.

The defender’s departure ends a 15-year association with his boyhood club, having joined the Academy at the age of eight.
 
Now 23, Targett made a total of 63 appearances for Saints across five years in the first team, making his debut in a Capital One Cup tie at Millwall in August 2014.
 
His only goal for the club, scored in the 3-3 draw with Bournemouth at St Mary’s in April, effectively clinched Premier League survival last season.
 
Targett has been an outstanding ambassador for the Academy, setting a fine example for future Staplewood graduates.
 
Everyone at Southampton Football Club would like to thank Matt for his tremendous service and wish him every success in the future.
