Aston Villa in talks with Matt Targett over a new contract

Dean Smith

An update concerning Matt Targett’s future at Aston Villa has emerged on Monday.

Targett impressing with Villa

Matt Targett of course joined Aston Villa from Southampton in the summer of 2019.

The Claret and Blue and are believed to have paid around £14m to bring the defender to Villa Park.

Targett featured 28 times in the Premier League last term, as Dean Smith and co. just about staved off relegation.

And with Villa much improved this season, Targett has again proven a key cog for the Midlands-based outfit.

All told, he has featured on 30 occasions in the league, starting in every one of the Villans’ outings.

Along with other key players such as Tyrone Mings and Emiliano Martinez, Targett has been crucial to Villa tightening up their backline to this point in the campaign.

Aston Villa to reward Matt Targett

His impressive displays even saw word spread last month that Targett was in line for an England call-up from Gareth Southgate.

The defender did not feature for the Three Lions in the end, but now looks set to be rewarded in another way.

Targett’s current contract runs until the summer of 2023. But, according to The Athletic, Aston Villa are in talks with their defensive star over a new deal containing a potentially significant pay rise, in recognition of his impressive exploits since joining the club.
