With speculation on the summer transfer rumour mill having already linked us with an interest once again in Southampton Academy graduate Matt Targett, as the week came to a close it looked like there might be a few developments in Aston Villa’s reported chase of him.

Despite Claims, Villa Won’t Be Launching A Double Raid On Southampton

The 23-year-old left back is highly rated by Southampton and with him impressing during his spell with Fulham in 2017/18 his future has long been in doubt owing to his game time on the south coast and Villa have been linked with him for the last few transfer windows.

On Friday, Sky Sports were claiming that talks were now being held between both clubs over a potential sale as Targett had apparently made it clear he wanted to move on this summer.

Whether it’s a case of the tail wagging the dog and the rumour mill simply feeding itself or not, reported confidence of the likelihood of this deal coming off for us this summer did seem to be rising as the day progressed.

I certainly wouldn’t be against it.

Update – reports on Sunday were stating announcement imminent on a £14million deal rising to £17million.
