​Aston Villa plot move for Southampton defender Targett

Aston Villa are hoping to make a move for Southampton defender Matt Targett.

The Villa Park club are interested in strengthening their back line, as they will likely lose the 21-year-old and other loan signings from last season.

One name that is interesting Dean Smith's men is 23-year-old Targett, per The Sun.

Targett is not a regular at Southampton, which could tempt him to move to a newly promoted side.

The left-back is behind Ryan Bertrand in the Saints pecking order under Ralph Hasenhuttl.

He does have a contract until 2022, which means he will not come cheap for Villa.
