Aston Villa have already been incredibly busy in the transfer market and they’ve now added another name to their growing squad ahead of a return to the Premier League.
It was news that left fans of the Villans absolutely delighted, as they flocked to Twitter to have their say on the new signing and welcome him to Villa Park.
There was a major talking point when it came to Neil Taylor. One supporter claimed Targett was much better whilst another said that Taylor was their weakest link.
A further fan claimed that the 23-year-old ticked all the boxes as one individual said it was very good business.

The left-back is particularly good going forward and made 1.4 key passes per game last term. It was a tally that meant of all full-backs to play ten or more games in the top flight in 2018/19, he was fourth for chances created.
Here’s the best of the reaction.
Yessss finally a new left-back!!! Much better than Taylor! 23 chances created last term?

Fantastic addition. We haven’t had a quality LB in a long time Targett can be that guy.
